The van driver, a man in his 30s, failed to stop at the scene but has since been arrested and released under investigation.

The driver of the motorbike, a man in his 40s, was taken to hospital and suffered minor injuries.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: "Officers are urging anyone who saw the vehicles to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 729s of 15 July 2018."

Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
