Cyclist found seriously injured on the ground following incident in Elmswell

A cyclist suffered serious injuries, in what is thought to have been an accident, after being found lying on the ground near a roundabout in Elmswell.

Now police are appealing for witnesses to the incident which took place at 11.10am on Friday, November 22.

Officers were called to reports involving the cyclist on the A1088, near to the roundabout junction with Church Road.

The cyclist – a man aged in his 70s – was found lying on the ground having sustained head injuries and was taken to West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury St Edmunds, for treatment. His injuries are described as potentially life-changing.

It is unclear whether or not the cyclist was involved in a collision with another vehicle and so police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
