North Yorkshire Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed a collision on Saturday in which a cyclist died after colliding with an HGV.

The incident happened on a roundabout at the junction of the M62 and A19 near Eggborough, at around 8.45am that morning.

The victim, who lost a leg in the incident and later died in hospital, was a 49-year-old man from Goole. He was riding a Specialized bike at the time and was wearing a red and black cycling kit with a red and black rucksack.

The victim was taken by air ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary where he succumbed to his injuries, but his identity has not yet been revealed to the public by police.

The HGV was described as having a white and blue trailer pulled by a white cab. The driver of the HGV was not injured in the incident.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to get in touch with them straight away by calling 101, selecting option two and asking for David Minto.
