Eden Valley Epic bike rider has heart attack

A man in his 50s suffered a heart attack while taking part in the Eden Valley Epic bike ride.

Emergency services were called to the incident between Murton and Wharley Croft near Dufton at 1pm yesterday.

A Cumbria police spokesman said: “Until all the facts are known we are treating the incident as a possible road traffic collision.”

The man was airlifted to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, where his condition was described as “very poorly”.

The 60-mile route started at Penrith Leisure Centre and headed south towards Orton before looping north to Appleby then going through Dufton, Milburn and Langwathby.

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
