Another left-turning lorry?

A CYCLIST has died in Old Trafford following a crash with a truck.

At 12.50pm yesterday, police were called to the junction of Seymour Grove and Talbot Road following reports of the accident.

Officers attended and discovered a cycle and a truck had collided outside the Toll Gate Inn.

The 25-year-old cyclist was taken to hospital with serious injuries and died a short time later.

This cycling fatality is deemed worthy of mention by BBC News because of a family connection.
