His condition is described as critical but stable.

The driver of the van, a man in his 50s, stopped at the scene and has assisted police with their enquiries.

Sergeant Martin Mayne said: “We have spoken to a number of members of the public who came to the cyclist’s aid immediately after the collision, but are appealing for anyone who may have seen the collision itself to come forward.

“If you were in the area at the time and may have captured any part of the incident on dashcam, or the bike or van immediately before it, please check your footage and let us know if you see the van or the cyclist, or anything significant.”
