Fire service had to cut handlebars from bike in Leeds before the man was taken to hospital

A Leeds cyclist has been taken to hospital with a bike's handlebars impaled in his leg.

Fire crews were called to help paramedics after a man's leg became impaled.

The West Yorkshire Fire Service crew, who attended the incident, had to cut the handlebars from the bike before the man could be taken to hospital, with the bar still in his leg. There are no details from the fire service about how this happened.

The incident took place yesterday morning in the Hunslet area of Leeds, and comes just two weeks after another Yorkshire cyclist was taken to hospital with handlebars impaled in his groin.
