A CYCLIST has been injured in a collision on a newly-completed junction in Southampton.

The man was knocked off his bike by a car at the Itchen Bridge junction at 8.45am this morning.

The driver of the car, a blue or black Mercedes estate, drove off and the cyclist was treated for minor injuries by paramedics at the scene.

The junction only reopened last Monday after major works to make it more cycle friendly.

It is part of a major £1.7million project to create a cycle highway from Woolston to the city centre.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact the Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101.
