Cyclist killed by car that sped off from police in Bingley


A cyclist has died after being hit by a car that was being chased by police.
At around 7.34pm officers on patrol had suspicions about a silver Vauxhall Vectra in Cottingley Cliffe Road, Bingley.
They attempted to stop the vehicle but it sped off and collided with a male cyclist a short distance away. The cyclist died at the scene.
The driver of the vehicle has been arrested and remains in police custody.
Road closures are in place at Cottingley Cliffe Road at the junction of High Bank Lane and are likely to remain in place for some time.
Due to the circumstances an immediate referral has been made to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
