Thanks to WMAS for that, and my best wishes to the wee fella who fell off!
Earlier this evening (Tuesday, 16th September 2014) there appears to have been an accident involving a cyclist on the Chester Road, Shire Oak, between the Friezland Lane junction and Anchor Bridge.
I’ve had conflicting reports of what’s happened; the cyclist seems to be injured, but OK. West Midlands Police and an ambulance were in attendance. I’m unsure if any other vehicles were involved.

@BrownhillsBob not sure who was involved it had already happened when we walked past. Road now all cleared so hope they are ok.— David Mycock (@nutdm) September 16, 2014
@nutdm @BrownhillsBob any news on the cyclist? I cycled down there earlier on my way home from work— barry (@barryshaw) September 16, 2014
I will try and get a statement from the relevant authorities in the morning – of course, my best wishes and sympathies to the cyclist involved.
