A teenage cyclist who died after a crash with a van has been named.

Charlie Fox, 14, from Seacroft, died in hospital after being injured as he and two 15-year-old boys cycled along Bullerthorpe Lane, Leeds, on Monday.

One boy was also seriously injured and remains in hospital in a stable condition, West Yorkshire Police said.

The driver, a 28-year-old man from Castleford, arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been released while inquiries continue.
