Rescuers were called to help two injured cyclists.

Rescuers were called to help a mountain biker who had injured their shoulder and chest in Dalby Forest at about 3pm on June 9.

Following treatment from a doctor the injured cyclist was moved to a waiting ambulance. 14 rescuers were deployed for two and a half hours.

It follows two call-outs at the weekend where cyclists had fallen and injured themselves, with one requiring the air ambulance.

Yesterday, rescuers were called by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to help move an injured cyclist on a bridleway on the Yorkshire Wolds at about 7pm.

The injured cyclist was carried 400 metres on a bell stretcher to the nearest road where an ambulance was waiting. 15 rescuers and two vehicles were deployed for nearly three hours.
