A CYCLIST who died after being involved in a collision with a camper van has been named.
Derek Reginald Linsdell, of Apsley Way, in Longthorpe, Peterborough, died on Sunday, following the collision on the A47.
The accident happened on the westbound carriageway just before the Castor junction.
The tragedy happened at around 12.30pm, when the 77-year-old, who was riding a silver mountain bike, collided with a Peugeot camper van, driven by a 79-year-old man from the Rutland area.
