    I think you’re headline is slightly misleading,I walked passed this accident yesterday and it looked like the lorry had dragged the cyclist with it when leaving the junction,I could be wrong but it was the wrong angle to be a collision,cyclists have to be aware of the dangers of sitting down the side of big trucks,I hope the cyclist is okay but I heard it was a nasty one,didn’t look to good.

    Hi Jo – I contacted the police for an update. The good news is that this was not a fatality. It appears no further information will be forthcoming, though.

    I am sorry to say that the 66 year old woman died on Thursday 10th Dec. She was a popular local recently retired careworker and will be sadly missed.
