Police investigating a road collision where a cyclist died are tryign to trace the operator of a drone that was flying in the area at the time.
The collision happened shortly before 6pm on southbound carriageway of the A133 at Weeley on Sunday (June 12.)
The cyclist, a man aged in his 40s, and from Clacton, suffered serious head injuries following a collision with a white Ford Transit van. He was taken to hospital but died at 8.45pm.
