Emergency services attended the scene where the two cyclists were taken to hospital for treatment on their injuries. One remains in a critical condition.
The driver of a black Audi A3, a 37-year-old, remained at the scene to assist officers with their enquiries and was later arrested and remains in custody for questioning.

“Our thoughts are with the family of the injured cyclists as one still remains in a critical condition.
“A thorough investigation has continued overnight and now we are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the area yesterday around the time of the incident – or who may have footage that could end up being crucial to this investigation.”
