Fri, 30 Nov 2012

Trevor Lever, 70, of Bailiff Bridge died in hospital after falling from his bike in on the A58 Godley Lane near the Undercliffe petrol station in Halifax just after midnight on Friday November 30th.

Mr Lever suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

He died on Friday afternoon as a result of his injuries.

He had been travelling with a group of other cyclists and they had earlier been cycling through Mytholmroyd.

Mr Lever was at Stump Cross, around 100m from the service station, when he came off his bicycle.

He was active in his local community and as a mark of respect last night’s Christmas lights switch-on in Bailiff Bridge was cancelled.

Police are interviewing Mr Lever’s cycling colleagues and are appealing for witnesses who saw the incident to contact the Major Collison Enquiry Team on 01924 293047 or via 101.

There has been no mention of the involvement of another road user in the incident.
