Derbyshire police have thanked members of the public for their response to an appeal on the identification of a cyclist who died in a road collision.

The incident happened on a stretch of the A61 near Dronfield on Thursday, July 31, and involved Citroen C3 and a man riding a yellow and black Carrera bicycle.

A substantial number of calls from the public have since been received and police now have enough information to progress to the next stage of the investigation.

The cyclist suffered serious head injuries in the collision and died at hospital.

Police investigating the incident released photographs of the man’s cycle helmet, one of his shoes, the brand of bike he was riding and an Evo-fit image of him as he was not carrying any identification.

A Derbyshire police spokesman said: “The response to our appeal was excellent and the information we received has been of great assistance to the officers in this case.

“We would like to thank those who came forward or shared the appeal online.”
