It seems a skip lorry collided with a cyclist on Tanner Street
(outside the fish and chip shop) at about 1300hrs. Lots of ambulances and police in attendance. I asked and the police said the cyclist was very badly injured. I couldn't see the skip lorry although the bike was left in the middle of the road, presumably for collision investigators to look into. A 47 bus was also left in situ but the police officer said it was definitely a skip lorry. I hope the cyclist recovers from his injuries. Didn't actually see the collision so not sure of the circumstances. Very sad.
