A motorcyclist is in a critical condition in hospital after a collision with a car in Oldbury.

West Midlands Police said it happened on Wolverhampton Road at the junction with Causeway Green at about 10:45 BST.

Fire crews were also called to the scene as the car involved had briefly caught fire after the collision.

The 34-year-old man riding the motorcycle was taken to hospital where he is in intensive care, police said. The road remains closed.
