MESSAGES of support have flooded in for a 12-year-old boy who was seriously injured in a collision with a car.

Holywells High School pupil Bradley Orton is in a stable condition at Addenbrooke's Hospital following the crash on Saturday evening.

Medics say his health is gradually improving.

Bradley was on his bike when he was in collision with a Peugoet 206 GTI at about 7.25pm in Landseer Road, close to the junction with Wynterton Close.

He was taken to Ipswich Hospital and then transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridgeshire.

A number of readers have since posted messages on The Evening Star website.
