A black Toyota Yaris collided with Mr Bryant’s blue MBK bike, near the Ocean Beach restaurant.
Members of the public raced to the stricken biker’s aid and witnesses have now commented on the Echo’s website, www.echonews.co.uk SerenaG said: “I was one of the first on the scene and in my opinion, the car driver was probably blinded by the sun and didn't see Lee. I wish Lee a very speedy recovery.”

Good luck Lee.”
Lee, who works as a crane operator at Shoebury-based Industrial Metal Services, is reportedly still in a critical condition in hospital, but is out of his coma.
