A hate crime against a cyclist

A CYCLIST injured after her bike was tampered with has said she will never ride again.

Jean Stubbs, 54, was thrown over the handlebars of her bicycle in High Street, Clifford, around noon on Wednesday, August 12.

Police initially believed Mrs Stubbs may have hit a pothole in the road, but on further investigation the cause was found to be more sinister.

Sgt Matthew Appleyard of Wetherby Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "Police have examined the bike and it would appear that the front wheel nuts had been tampered with."
