A male cyclist was injured this evening whilst riding his electric mountain bike on Moss Lane in Partington.

Police closed the road to vehicles although the scene was not taped off which meant other cyclists could get through.

The Air Ambulance was called and was seen doing circles around where the injured man was, it then landed in a field and two members of staff raced to the scene.

At the scene we saw no vehicle that could have been involved in this crash, no potholes are seen at that point, we asked police about what had happened, and we were told to contact GMP press office which we have now done.

The man on first glance did not look too injured, his bike was in tact so this one might be more sinister than first thought and we will update this article when more is known
