A cyclist was airlifted to hospital with serious head injuries after a crash in Spixworth.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash, which happened just after 4.30pm on Monday afternoon.

Officers were called to reports that a silver Volvo XC90, which was travelling along Church Lane, and the cyclist, who was joining the junction of Buxton Road, had crashed.

The cyclist, a man aged in his 60s, came off his bike and hit a brick wall. He suffered serious head injuries and was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

The driver of the Volvo was uninjured as a result of the collision.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the driving/riding manner of either vehicle, or has dash-cam footage of the incident.

They should contact PC Gary Prescott at Acle Roads Policing on 101.
