An uninsured driver, Michael Bradbury, 30, has been jailed for 45 months after driving into three cyclists and leaving one fighting for his life when he fell asleep at the wheel.

He drove off without helping the three seriously injured riders despite knowing “he had hit something” on the A15, south of Lincoln.

William Tweddell, 58, was immediately knocked unconscious and remains in hospital a year after suffering multiple injuries in the collision which left him paralysed and wheelchair bound.

Two other riders – Adrian Boswood, 52, from Hertfordshire and Christopher Pratt, 31, from Bourne – were also seriously injured when Bradbury drove straight into the back of their group as they took part in a 600km overnight cycling event.
