A 43 year old male cyclist has died after a colission involving a car on the A35 near Charmouth.

Emergency services were called to the scene, around half a mile west of the Charmouth roundabout at around 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon (2nd August).

Police believe the cyclist, who they say was visiting the area, may have been struck from behind on the westbound carriageway.

The driver of a small silver coloured hatchback, an 83 year old local man, is assisting police.

They would like to hear from anyone seeing the incident, or the driving and riding of those involved prior to the colission by calling 101 and quoting incident reference 02:300.
