Officers are appealing for witnesses following a road traffic collision between a car and cyclist on the A133, Little Clacton by-pass.

The collision happened shortly before 12pm on September 17 under the Rectory Road bridge.

A car had collided with a bicycle while travelling towards Weeley.

The driver failed to stop and left the 22-year-old cyclist lying in the road.

Members of the public stopped at the scene to help and an ambulance took the man to Colchester hospital.

He was discharged the following day with minor injuries.

The car was a Citroen and possibly white or grey in colour, which was missing the nearside door mirror.
