A female cyclist was taken to hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a lorry in Cambridge this morning.

The East of England Ambulance Service received a call at 10.15am today to a report of a crash between a bicycle and a lorry at the Mill Road junction with Hemingford Road.

Emergency services treated a woman, believed to be in her 20s, with a suspected broken leg and pelvis.

She was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further treatment. Her injuries were described as serious but not life threatening.

Police temporarily closed Mill Road and Coleridge Road after oil spilled on the tarmac. The roads were reopened just before 11am. The cause of the oil spillage is unclear.
