Bradley Wiggins 'was blue' by the time ambulance arrived

The Lancashire Evening Post has quoted the attendant at a petrol forecourt where Bradley Wiggins is thought to have been injured in a collision.

Yasmin Smith says she went to help the Olympic cyclist after the incident:

By the time I got there he had moved to a safer place but was still on the ground and he was in a lot of pain.

He said he thought he had broken his ribs and while a lot of police cars arrived it was about 15 minutes before the ambulance got there by which time he was blue.
