A woman is in a critical condition in hospital after sustaining ‘serious injuries’ while cycling.

The rider was found by members of the public in Marsh Lane, near Portbury Docks, on Tuesday morning.

Her injuries, Avon and Somerset Constabulary say, are consistent with a collision or fall.

Police are keen to track down and speak to a motorcyclist who was in the area at the time.

A police spokesman said: "Officers are particularly keen to speak with a motorcyclist believed to have been using the path at the time who may have witnessed the incident.

"He is described as a white man in his late-50s or early-60s, of stocky build, with grey hair and a grey beard.

"The bike was described as 'old' and possibly light grey."
