The cyclist was hit by a light-coloured van at the junction of Condor Grove and Whitegate Drive, before being taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

He was today in a stable condition, the constabulary said in a statement, as the force appealed for witnesses to last Tuesday's accident, which happened at around 6pm.

PC Mark Howson, from the Road Policing Unit (RPU), said: "This incident left the cyclist with some serious injuries and our enquiries to locate the driver of the van are very much ongoing.
