A cyclist was rushed to hospital with suspected head injuries after a collision on the Banbury Road and Myton Road roundabout in Warwick on Thursday morning.

Ambulance crews and an air ambulance were called to the scene around 7.45am when the man in his 30s was involved in a collision with a van.

After being treated at the scene by paramedics he was taken by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokesperson said: “The cyclist, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital to be treated for head injuries following a collision with a van.
