Cyclist killed in road collision

A cyclist has been killed in a collision with a people carrier in Shropshire.

The cyclist, a man believed to be aged 18, was in collision with a green Peugeot Partner Combi on the B4386 near Yockleton on Saturday, police said.

"He was taken to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by ambulance but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving," a police spokesman said.

Police appealed for witnesses to the crash which happened at about 1800 GMT.

The man driving the Peugeot and his female passenger were treated at the scene for shock but did not need hospital treatment, the spokesman added.

An inquest into the circumstances of the collision will be opened in due course.
