The 16-year-old girl fell from the bike around 12.45pm on Thursday (21 July).

Police say she somehow fell off the vehicle and landed on the opposite side of the road. The girl was taken to Royal Preston Hospital with suspected broken bones.
Sgt Claire Pearson from the Road Policing Unit said: “The girl was extremely lucky to have escaped from this with just cuts to her abdomen as it could have been much more serious.
