A MOTORCYCLIST has been taken to hospital after being involved in a collision in Prenton.

Police were called to the junction of Prenton Lane and St Stephen's Road just about 8.15am today, Tuesday after reports of a two car collision.

Prenton Lane was closed in both directions between Storeton Road and Prospect Road following the collision, which officers say was "damage only". 

However, police say a short time later, a motorbike collided with one of the cars, which was in the middle of the road.

The motorcyclist suffered minor injuries and has been taken to hospital for treatment.
