SEVEN Sisters Road was partially closed this morning for the second time in 24 hours after a moped rider was thrown from his bike in a collision with a car.

The rider had to be rushed to hospital after he was hit by a sliver car at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and Finsbury Park Road at 9.15am.

He suffered minor injuries but is expected to make a full recovery.

A police spokesman said: “A car was in collision with a moped at 9.15am, The moped rider had minor injuries and was taken to Whittington Hospital in Archway.
