Cyclist suffers broken leg after crash
A CYCLIST was left with a broken leg after he was involved in a crash while riding along a busy main road.
Police stopped Southend-bound traffic and diverted it along Hamlet Court Road while the man was treated by a paramedic and ambulance crew.
He was not taken to hospital in an ambulance but made his own way to A&E at Southend.
The road was reopened just after 8.30am.
