A cyclist in his 70s has tragically died after coming off his bike on Kings Road, outside the i360 tower in Brighton. The incident occurred around 4.30pm on Monday (August 7). Despite the best efforts of passers-by and paramedics, the local man sadly passed away as a result of his injuries.
Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward with any information about the incident. They are particularly interested in speaking to anyone who may have captured relevant mobile phone or dash cam footage from the area at the time. Officers are also making enquiries to establish whether the cyclist was involved in any other incident along the seafront between 4pm and 4.30pm prior to the fall. He was travelling west to east.
A Sussex Police spokesperson said: “We are looking to speak to anyone who saw what happened, or who may have captured any relevant mobile phone or dash cam footage from the area at that time.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact police online or by calling 101 quoting Operation Cashew. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the cyclist at this difficult time.
