A charity cycling event is in jeopardy after two of the people taking part were hit by a van.

Pedals for Medals was set to be a non-stop bike ride from Manchester to Gibraltar involving amateur cyclists and the armed forces.

The event has now been delayed until two of the bikers, both of whom suffered broken ribs and punctured lungs, are healthy again.
