A MOTORCYCLIST was airlifted to hospital after he was seriously hurt in a crash on the A21 on Saturday (November 30).

The 30-year-old rider, from Hastings, suffered injuries to his thorax and upper leg when his motorbike was in collision with a Vauxhall car on the stretch of road near Robertsbridge.
