DRIVERS are being urged to find an alternative route home after a biker suffered "serious leg injuries" in a collision on a major Wiltshire route.

The incident on the A362 near Warminster occurred just after 3.30pm this afternoon, resulting in the road being closed in both directions.

No further details have been disclosed about the motorcyclist's condition.

And although not near Salisbury itself, commuters are being warned that the closure could lead to longer drive times, especially for those heading west out of the city.
