Cyclist flown to Newcastle hospital after A66 crash

A cyclist has been airlifted to hospital with head injuries following a serious road crash.

It happened on the A66 near Threlkeld - the second serious accident on that stretch of road in a matter of days.

The other saw passers by rescue six people - including a family of five - from a two-car crash.

The latest accident happened at about 5.40pm yesterday between the B5322 Station Road and A5091.

A cyclist - a 30-year-old local man - was in collision with a bus.

He suffered head injuries and was airlifted to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

The A66 was closed eastbound for just under two hours, causing congestion on the A66 and A591.
