Cyclist hurt in park wire crash
A cyclist has been treated for serious facial injuries after riding into a wire which was deliberately left strung across part of a Swindon park.

The woman was cycling with her family through St Mark's Recreation Ground in Gorsehill on Thursday evening when she struck the wire.

The impact threw her off her bike. She was taken to hospital with injuries which police said might need surgery.

Anyone with information about the wire is urged to come forward.
