The incident happened at about 8.50am yesterday, December 19, on the A145 between Brampton and Sotherton.

The victim, a female in her mid 30s, was cycling along the road when a car or small van collided with her and failed to stop at the scene.

The victim did not need hospital treatment but went to her local doctors for treatment to a bad graze to her right arm. She also sustained significant bruising and swelling to her right hip, a spasm to muscles in her back and also had pain around the groin.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has knowledge of it should contact Suffolk Police on 101 quoting CAD number 215 of Tuesday, December 19.
