But officers are specifically keen to identify two witnesses following a serious collision.

The cyclist, a 17-year-old male, was taken to hospital where he remains with what are believed to be 'serious, life-changing injuries'.

A police spokesperson said: "Officers investigating the collision are keen to identify two witnesses who may be able to help with the investigation.

"The first is a woman wearing sports/jogging style clothes who was walking on the opposite side of the road to the Saxon Mill pub, from Warwick in the direction of the A46, at around the time of the incident.

"The second was a male doctor in a VW Golf who is thought to have been driving behind the Seat Ibiza. He stopped at the scene and identified himself as ‘Doctor Sammy’.

"Officers would really like to speak to these two witnesses and are urging them to get in touch.

"Anyone who witnessed the incident, knows who the above two witnesses may be, has dash cam footage or information that could help with enquiries, is asked to report this via our website or by calling 101 quoting incident number 421 of 5 June."
