The 21-year-old was riding a blue Gilera DNA 50 moped along the pavement in Lincoln Road, near to York Road, in the early hours of Sunday morning (April 3) when the collision happened.

It is believed he clipped a metal fence which separates the road from the footpath at about 1.10am, lost control and collided with a nearby lamp post.

He was taken to Peterborough City Hospital but later transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where he remains in a critical condition.
