Police are appealing for information to identify a cyclist involved in a collision in Leeds that left an elderly woman with serious injuries.

The 77-year-old woman was on the pavement at the junction of King George Avenue and Harrogate Road in Chapel Allerton when she was hit by a cyclist shortly after 10 am on Wednesday, February 1.

The cyclist rode away from the scene and officers are appealing to identify them.

The woman needed hospital treatment for head and leg injuries and is continuing to undergo recuperative care following the incident.

Police have released CCTV images of a cyclist seen in the area at the time of the collision. They appear to show a white male wearing a dark-coloured coat, a blue top, and an orange beanie hat.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said; “Although the image is low quality, it is hoped someone may recognise them from the clothing and type of bike.

“Anyone with any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact PC 3093 Surtees via 101 quoting reference 13230060995 or online at www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat”
