Davies-Jones injured in collision
Top British cyclist Emma Davies-Jones is in hospital after a road accident.

The 27-year-old, who represented Great Britain at the Athens Olympics, was cycling to the National Velodrome in Manchester when she was hit by a car.

The pursuiter was taken to the city's Royal Infirmary before being transferred to the spinal injury unit at Hope Hospital, Salford.

The British Cycling Federation said in a statement that Davies-Jones is expected to make a full recovery.

Davies-Jones' father, John Davies, paid tribute to the British cycling team and her Belgian pro team.

"Emma is making excellent progress and the support of everyone at World Class and the management of Vlaanderen Capri Sonne has been superb."

Davies-Jones is expected to remain in hospital for seven to 10 days to allow her progress to be monitored.
