A 57-year-old man who was seriously injured in a collision in Milton Keynes earlier this month has died in hospital.

The man, who was from Milton Keynes, was riding a blue ladies racing bike which was in collision with a silver Toyota Avensis on the A509 Portway, at about 12.15am on October 1.

He suffered a serious head injury in the collision and was initially taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital, but later transferred to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where he died yesterday.

PC Neil Stephenson, of the Roads Policing Unit based in Milton Keynes, is appealing for anyone who saw the car or bike prior to the collision to come forward.
