A CAR and motorbike crashed in a Mill Hill road beset by controversy this week.

The Honda Jazz and a Suzuki motorbike collided in Partingdale Lane on Monday.

Emergency services were called to the road and paramedics treated minor injuries on the scene.

The accident is the sixth in Partingdale Lane since it was controversially reopened to through traffic.

It had been closed for four years amid concerns over the safety of pedestrians on the winding lane, and reopened in October 2007 after £250,000 worth of safety improvements.

Residents believe it remains dangerous.
