Police are re-appealing for witnesses after a cyclist was found unconscious on a grass verge on Lunt Road, Lunt, Sefton, near to the junction with Long Lane, on Sunday, 15 May 2016.

The cyclist was found at about 11:25am on Sunday by a member of the public and is currently described as critical but stable.

It is believed that the man may have had a medical episode and officers are appealing to anyone who may have seen the man cycling in the area near to Lunt Road. Officers are particularly interested in talking to the occupants of a white/silver car which slowed down near the scene and may have seen the cyclist, who was travelling towards the Formby by-pass from Lunt Village, fall from his bike.

The cyclist is described as a white male, 56 years of age. He was riding a blue Raleigh road bike and wearing a blue top (not a high visibility top as first described), grey shorts and a black cycling helmet.

Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the cyclist prior to stopping near to Long Lane or ideally anyone who may have seen him coming to a stop. The cyclists family have been contacted and are with him at hospital.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Roads Policing Unit on 0151 777 5747.
