A cyclist has died after collapsing while mountain-biking at a country park.

The air ambulance, alongside land ambulances, were called to the car park of Apedale Community Country Park shortly before 8.50am this morning.

The cyclist, a man believed to be 50 years old, had been with friends at the park, between Silverdaleand Chesterton when he collapsed.

He was taken to hospital having suffered a cardiac arrest, but sadly nothing could be done to save him and he was pronounced dead.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "We were called at 8.50am by our colleagues at the ambulance service to Apedale Country Park.

"The reported a man, who had been mountain-biking with friends, complained about feeling unwell before he collapsed.

"It appears he suffered a cardiac arrest. He was taken to hospital but was confirmed dead on arrival. The man's family have been made aware."
