THE A350 in Blandford St Mary is closed both ways between the A354 and Littleton Drove following a serious collision.

It is thought the road could be closed for some time while police officers carry out forensic examinations.

A police spokesperson said a car and a motorcycle were involved in the collision, which happened at 1.45pm.

"The road will remain closed for a considerable time," she said.

She added that officers would like to thank members of the public for their patience.
