Ynys Mon rider seriously injured in Island Games crash

An Ynys Mon cyclist taking part in the Island Games in Jersey has been taken to hospital following a serious crash.

The accident happened between two women cyclists as they sprinted to the finish line. The Ynys Mon rider and another from Bermuda were competing in the Town Criterium race when they crashed.

The roads of St Helier were closed for a short time by police but re-opened just before 3pm.

Both women were taken to hospital. A meeting is expected to take place shortly to decide whether the men's Town Criterium race - due to take place tonight - will still go ahead.
