A British cyclist has been killed in a crash on a bike trail in Iowa.

US police identified the victim as 35-year-old Adam Pritchard, from Torquay, who was visiting family in the state.

His body was discovered on Thursday afternoon in a creek beside the Greenbelt Trail in Clive by a passer-by, who called police.

As police were investigating, a family member who had been riding along the trail with Mr Pritchard returned to the scene to see why he had not caught up.

Investigators believe Mr Pritchard lost control of his bike, veered off the trail and dropped about 8ft on to rocks and into the creek. His death remains under investigation.
