Detectives from Leicestershire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) have launched an investigation following the incident, which occurred on the A6 Leicester Road at around 8.20pm on Monday (October 4).

The PCSO was cycling while on duty when she was involved in a collision with a black Kia Carens. Officers attended the scene and the PCSO was subsequently taken to hospital.

A 40-year-old man from Loughborough is in custody after being arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving while under the influence of drugs.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hawkins, from the SCIU, said: “I would firstly like to thank those members of the public who attended the scene and came to my colleague’s aid following the collision.

“Our investigation is very much in its early stages and we require further public help. I would like to speak to anyone who was travelling along Leicester Road – either towards or from Loughborough town centre – who has a dashcam in their vehicle.”
