Last modified: 11 May 2021 at 12:41pm

Officers are appealing for witnesses to contact them, after a cyclist was left with injuries following a believed tyre blow out.

The cyclist was travelling along the unclassified road between Gayle and Oughtershaw, near to Busk Farm at around 11.10am on Sunday 9 May 2021 when it’s thought his tyre blew. He came off his bike onto the carriageway and received superficial injuries which were later treated at Airedale Hospital.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses, who haven’t yet spoken to the police, to come forward so they can determine the circumstances around the incident. They are particularly interested in speaking to the driver of a small blue hatchback, believed to be a Nissan Note, as they believe they may have information which is of assistance to the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Jordan Salt. You can also email Jordan.Salt@northyorkshire.police.uk

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
