A CYCLIST is believed to have been knocked off his bike by a van on a rural Huntingdonshire road.

Paramedics were sent to Long Drove, Holme, shortly after 11am today (Tuesday) to treat a 55-year-old man who suffered cuts to his head and neck.

The road was shut between Herne Road (B1040), Ramsey St Mary's, and Pingle Bank, Holme.

A Cambridgeshire police spokesman said: "We were called to Long Drove, Holme, at 11.08am to reports that a cyclist had suffered head injuries.

"Details around how he sustained the injuries are still sketchy and investigations are being carried out."

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service added: "He was taken to Peterborough City Hospital and his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening."

INFORMATION: Anyone with any information should call police on 101.
