BARROW Police have appealed for information after a cyclist was injured in a collision with a car door.

Have your say
I had the same thing happen to me some years ago which resulted in a broken wrist. I've also had many near misses where I've just managed to avoid colliding with car doors being flung open. The biggest problem is the amount of motorists who park their cars in the cycle lanes along Salthouse and Roose Roadand then just throw open their car doors without even checking to see if a cyclist might be passing.The council need to start issuing tickets to the purpetrators before someone is seriously injured or killed.
how many dogs were tied to this bike?,or maybe just arider not looking where they were going.
