Police appeal for information about death of cyclist near Bucknell
POLICE are appealing for sightings of a cyclist found dead at the roadside near Bucknell.
They believe the 51-year-old man may have fallen from his bike after suffering a medical condition but are trying to trace his movements before his death.
He was found around 9.30pm last night (Tuesday October 22) beside the B4367 on the approach to Bucknell.
Police believe the man had been riding his blue and white Ridgeback hybrid cycle along a back lane from Brampton Bryan towards Bucknell, joining the B4367 just outside Bucknell and then continuing towards the village.
He was found about 100 yards from the junction and police believe he may previously have been in Leintwardine.
The cyclist is described as around 18 to 20 stone with long black greying hair. He was wearing a red walker's jacket and blue jeans.
Anyone with information can call Ludlow or Shrewsbury police stations on 101.
