Police would like the woman who helped the cyclist to come forward

The accident is thought to have happened around 7.20pm on Tuesday, December 20 when the cyclist, who is 47 years old, fell from his bike on Inglewhite Road near to the Alston Arms pub. As the cyclist came round he remembered that a woman had stopped to ask if he was okay before she left the scene.

The cyclist then rang his family members who took him to Royal Preston Hospital to be checked over.

Officers are keen to trace this woman to try to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the accident.
