A cyclist who is believed to have witnessed a woman falling from Hownsgill viaduct is being sought by Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
A 50-year-old woman fell to her death from the viaduct located in Consett, County Durham, on Thursday, August 10 2017.
The area is very popular with cyclists – the viaduct is on the coast-to-coast (C2C) cycling route – and the IPCC are appealing for the witness to come forward.
The IPCC describes the cyclist as "a white male cyclist believed to be around 50 years of age of stocky build and wearing a T-shirt, sunglasses and a cycling helmet".
It is believed that the cyclist saw the incident at around 10am.
According to the IPCC, it has already identified two other cyclists who witnessed the incident.
Anyone with any information can contact the IPCC on 0800 151 0020, or via: email@example.com

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
