It happened at the traffic-light controlled junction of Langney Road with the A259 Susans Road around 5.20pm on Saturday (May 5).

The cyclist, a 48-year-old local man, suffered serious head injuries and was flown by the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton – said Sussex Police.

A 40-year-old local woman, who had been driving a white Kia Cee’d car, was unhurt.
