The cyclist who sadly died following a collision with a lorry near Sledmere on Friday, November 25, has been named as Ian Milner, 55, of Driffield.

Tragically, he and his wife Tracey also lost their son Owen in a road traffic collision in May, 2014, whilst he was riding his motorbike on the B1248 near Wansford.

The family has appealed to the media not to approach them directly and to respect their privacy at this very difficult time.

Officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collision, which happened at around 3.15pm on the B1253, close to Cowlam Crossroads.

Mr Milner had been riding his green Specialised Allez bike towards Sledmere at the time of the collision with a white Iveco tipper lorry, which was travelling in the same direction.

Sadly, he was pronounced dead at the scene by the Air Ambulance crew.

The driver of the lorry, a 29-year-old Bridlington man, was uninjured but treated for shock by paramedics.

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or saw either the cyclist or the lorry prior to the incident, is asked to call 101, quoting log number 322 of November 25.
