Two cyclists have died after they were hit by a car following a police incident in a flood-hit village in West Berkshire.
Officers were responding to a "fear-for-welfare" incident involving a black BMW convertible at A329 Purley Rise in Purley on Thames, West Berkshire at 9pm yesterday.
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: "The BMW, which was travelling on the A329 Purley Rise, subsequently collided with two cyclists, who both died at the scene.
"Specialist officers are currently in the process of informing and supporting their next of kin."
The BMW's driver was injured and taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading.
A man was later arrested in connection with the incident.
The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
