A 70-year-old woman was left injured on the side of the road by a driver who knocked her off her bike. 

The pensioner was cycling on Pond Lane, Malmesbury, on October 2 at around 1pm when a silver saloon-type car reportedly travelling at excess speed knocked her off her bike, causing a serious leg injury. 

The victim was left lying on the side of the road until another person helped her and she ended up spending 12 days in hospital as a result of the crash. 

Wiltshire Police are now seeking help to try and identify the person responsible.
