TOTNES MP Sarah Wollaston (pictured) has broken her arm in a cycling accident.

Dr Wollaston, who will find out later this week if she requires surgery to pin the break, said: "I fell off my bike while training for the 100-mile RideLondon event and this is going to set me back six weeks, which is very annoying, but one of those things."

She said the accident happened on Saturday on a towpath while on her way to watch her daughter compete in a rowing competition on the Thames.

She thanked staff at Charing Cross Hospital, who treated her after the accident, and all those passers-by who stopped to help.

She still hopes to compete in the fundraising event in August.
