An elderly cyclist is in a serious condition in hospital after being injured during a collision with a car.

The 69-year-old man from Preston is in Royal Preston Hospital in a critical condition.

Lancashire Police say a black Suzuki Swift collided with the cyclist. No arrests have been made and the police are appealing for information.

Both the Suzuki Swift and the pedal cycle were travelling towards Blackburn town centre from the Pleasington area and I urge anyone who saw either the car or the pedal cyclist at that time in the area of the collision to contact police.”
