An 80-year-old man was airlifted to hospital after an accident in York.

The man was cycling on Green Dykes Lane, on the approach to the traffic light junction with Hull Road and Lawrence Street, at around 7.04pm on Tuesday (October 10).

The accident also involved a BMW 1 Series that was stationary in traffic waiting for the traffic lights to change.

It appears the man on the bicycle collided with the rear of the BMW and has fallen onto the road.

Paramedics gave him treatment at the scene before he was taken by air ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary. He is in a serious but stable condition.

The scene was closed to traffic until 11.30pm while the collision investigation took place.
