A cyclist is in a serious condition in hospital after being knocked down by a bus.

The 32-year-old man was cycling on the A803 in Falkirk at around 8pm on Tuesday when he was hit by a bus going in the same direction.

Police said he suffered serious injuries and was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

The road was closed for about six hours and officers are appealing for any witnesses to the crash, particularly passengers on the bus who left before police arrived.

Sergeant Ruth Aitchison said: "The cyclist has suffered serious injuries as a result of this collision and we are currently working to establish exactly what happened during this incident.

"Anyone who was on the A803 on Tuesday evening and believes they have information relevant to this investigation is asked to contact police immediately.

"We are particularly looking to speak to the passengers of the First Bus who left the scene prior to police arrival."
