"We also dispatched a trauma team by car from London’s Air Ambulance.

“We treated a man at the scene before taking him to a major trauma centre as a priority.”

The A13 came to a standstill this morning after the man came off his motorcycle whilst on the Beckton Flyover. 

The Met do not believe any other vehicles were involved in the incident. 

Police are working to identify the man and contact his next of kin.
