Belfast cyclist 'critical' after being found with head injury on road by police

Police in Northern Ireland are working to establish what exactly happened to a cyclist found in east Belfast on Sunday night with a serious head injury.

The 21-year-old was located by a passing police patrol on Woodstock Link at around 8.30pm. He is now believed to be critically ill in hospital.

Inspector David Gibson said: “We have established that the male was a cyclist and we have recovered a bicycle we believe to be his. What isn’t clear is how the male sustained his injury.

"He could have fallen from the bike or have been involved in a road traffic collision. We are keen to speak to anyone who can help us determine exactly what happened and if anyone else was involved.

"Officers can be contacted by calling 101, quoting reference number 1240 17/06/18.”
