Cyclist killed in Grimsby lorry crash

A cyclist has been killed in a crash with a delivery lorry.

The man, in his 20s, died just after 04:30 BST at the junction of Freeman Street and Wellington Street in Grimsby, Humberside Police said.

Several roads have been closed, leading to the late arrival of the Queen's Baton Relay in the town.

Police have appealed for witnesses and said officers wanted to speak to an unidentified person who is thought to have moved something at the scene.

The driver of the lorry, a man in his 40s, was not injured.
