(JB) Saturday's fine weather attracted a large volume of motorcylists to the country's roads, resulting in three separate accidents.

During the course of Saturday emergency services responded to incidents in which four bikers were injured, fortunately none resulted in fatality.

At 1pm, a biker veered off the side of the road into a ditch after reportedly experiencing a “dizzy spell”.

Shortly afterwards another rider was injured after colliding with a guard rail along the Kautenbach Wiltz road.

Finally, at 3pm, two motorcyclists slipped on wood shavings shed by a farm trailer on the road. The pair slowed down but the shavings caused them to fall from their bikes.
