Detectives say the driver of the car was not arrested and their enquiries are continuing.

Det Con Maggie Langton, from the Leicestershire force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who was travelling along Paddys Lane on Sunday morning and who saw the collision occur or who has a dashcam in their vehicle.

“I’d also like to speak to anyone who saw the bronze Kia or cyclist beforehand.

“What can you remember? What did you see? Any details you’re able to provide could assist us further.”
