Police are appealing for information after a cyclist was knocked off his bike by a car which did not stop at the scene.

The cyclist was riding along Quarry Hill Road in Ilkeston at about 9.30pm on Friday, November 18 when the incident happened.

He was knocked off his bike by a car – thought to be a blue Peugeot 206 – and left with minor injuries in the collision.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

It is thought the car was being driven by an elderly man and officers want to hear from anyone who knows someone who owns a similar vehicle, which may recently have had signs of damage on the front end.
