A Hull cyclist has sustained a broken wrist after hitting a metal object allegedly planted in his way by a group of youths.

Police said the man was riding into an underpass near Dansom Lane and Mount Pleasant when he passed a group of five youths. He fell from his bike when he hit a piece of metal that was hidden under leaves and heard the youths shouting about it.

A spokesman for Humberside Police told the Hull Daily Mail: "He shouted at the group, who were reported to have responded in an aggressive manner verbally. The man was able to continue his journey and later sought treatment for a broken wrist."

Anyone with information is asked to call Humberside Police on 101, quoting the reference number 2014489.
