An 82-year-old cyclist involved in a race in Warwickshire has been killed in a collision with a lorry.

Ken Rushall was taking part in a 10-mile (16km) time trial with the Rugby Racing Cycling Club on Tuesday night.

Club treasurer Laurie Bird said Mr Rushall was "the fittest and healthiest person for his age I knew" and was a cycling enthusiast "through and through".

The crash happened on the Straight Mile Road near the A45 at Dunchurch, Rugby.

Warwickshire Police say they want to hear from anyone who saw a yellow and white Mercedes lorry or the cyclist.
