Sadly the man did not survive his injuries.

The man, believed to be a Romanian national, was hit by a car near Boston, Lincolnshire, on Thursday night.

Later, the force released an update, stating:

“We have identified the man’s next of kin”.

The force said the cyclist was travelling towards the A17 at the time of the crash.

He collided with a silver Ford Tourneo on the A1121 Boardsides at about 21:15, police said.
