Renewed appeal over Peebles cyclist crash

Police have issued a renewed appeal for information two weeks after a crash near Peebles which left a 75-year-old cyclist in a critical condition.

Carl Lane suffered serious spinal injuries in the collision with a Volvo car on the A72 on 27 October.

He is receiving specialist treatment in the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.

Sgt Neil Inglis said police were still trying to "establish exactly" why the collision had taken place.

He added: "I would ask any motorists or cyclists who were on the A72 on Monday evening and saw either of the vehicles involved prior to the collision to contact police immediately.

"In addition, anyone with any further information relevant to our investigation is also asked to get in touch."
