Cyclist treated for broken collar bone

One of three cyclists who were pushed from their bikes in a series of similar incidents in Leicestershire, has been treated for a broken collar bone.

The man was the third to be approached as he rode his bike on Saturday 6th July on Stanton Lane in Croft.

An "old style silver BMW" crossed in front of the cyclist and braked sharply causing the cyclist to fall from his bike.

In two other similar incidents in Earl Shilton and Broughton Astley, victims described a "old, silver" car approaching them and the front seat passenger leaning out to push them over.

The two other cyclists were treated for minor injuries.
