Attempted murder arrest over seriously injured cyclists

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after two cyclists were seriously injured in a crash with a van.

A bike, carrying a man in his 30’s and a woman in her 40’s, collided with a white Citroen Berlingo 625 En-Prise on Waterloo Road, Southampton, just before 21:50 BST on 17 July.

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening but the man’s injuries have since become life-threatening and he remains in hospital in a critical condition, police said.

Officers want to identify the driver of another van, possibly a Fiat Scudo, who stopped at the scene immediately after the crash.

"We believe this person may have vital information that will assist with the investigation," Hampshire Constabulary said.

A 33-year-old man, from Southampton, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, causing serious injury by dangerous driving, GBH, failing to stop after an accident and criminal damage.

He has since been released on bail while inquiries continue.

Oysters released into Hampshire river in bid to boost Solent stocks

Hundreds of oysters have been released into a Hampshire river as part of an initiative to re-introduce the shellfish to the Solent.

Blue Marine Foundation

Wightlink has partnered with Blue Marine Foundation to place cages containing juveniles into Lymington River.

A pilot project, involving adult oysters, was previously held at the site of Olympic champion Sir Ben Ainslie's racing team and at the University of Portsmouth's raft in Langstone Harbour.

Following its success, juveniles were then transferred to cages at those two sites, as well as at four other marinas, and last year 20,000 oysters were released onto the seabed of the Solent

The caged oysters started to reproduce in July 2017 and a 5mm baby (spat) was found off Portsmouth the following year.

Ninety-seven different species of other marine life have also been found living in the cages, including critically endangered European eels, juvenile spiny seahorse and sea bass.

Oyster fishing in the Solent was banned after the Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Project found the molluscs were failing to reproduce as a result of water quality, invasive species and over fishing.

A final report on the project is expected in 2021.
