Father-of-three Ralph Brazier, 52, died after his bicycle hit a notorious pothole in Weybridge, Surrey, the Daily Mail reports.

Mr Brazier was riding with Twickenham Cycling Club when he was thrown from his bike by the hole in the side of the road.

He was taken to a hospital in Chertsey but was pronounced dead after having a heart attack.

The Daily Mail reports residents in the area had been complaining about the pothole, which was marked with red paint, for several weeks.

A spokesman from Surrey County Council said: ‘Weybridge Road has been resurfaced in the last 18 months and it is important we now wait for the outcome of the investigation into what happened this week.

‘Our thoughts remain with the man's family and friends.’
