A cyclist is in a critical condition after suffering head injuries in a crash in Lewes on Sunday May 25.

Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident which took place in South Street at 6.40pm.

It is thought the 49-year-old fell from his racing bike after colliding with a loose skateboard.

The cyclist was transferred from the scene to the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

The helicopter landed in a nearby supermarket car park and he was then flown to King’s College Hospital in London where he is being treated.

Sergeant Huw Watts said: “We would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened.

“They should phone Sussex Police on 101 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk, quoting Operation Padstow.”
