A lane closure has been put in place while recovery of the car takes place. 

The spokesman confirmed ambulance crews were also called to the crash and checked over the driver of the car at the scene. 

He also said the motorcyclist suffered leg injuries and has been taken to hospital, but not by an ambulance. 

The AA traffic map suggests there are some delays in the area, but these are not expected to add on too much time to drivers' journeys.
