Witnesses are being sought by police after a cyclist was killed in a crash with a motorbike in Kidlington yesterday (Monday, October 15).

The collision was on the A4260 Banbury Road, at the junction with Sturdy’s Castle public house at around 6.35pm.

The rider of the pedal cycle, a man in his 60s, died at the scene while the motorcycle rider was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital with life threatening injuries where he remains.

Investigating Officer PC Robert Turpin said: “This was a tragic incident where a man lost his life and another man has sustained life threatening injuries.

“We are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen this collision to come forward and help with our enquiries.
