A 66-YEAR-OLD cyclist was killed in an alleged hit-and-run on Christmas Eve.

Malcolm Boswell, 66, died on Christmas Day after he was knocked off his bike in Hoe Lane after a collision with a blue Land Rover Discovery.

He had been cycling to his home in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.

A 69-year-old man was later arrested in Enfield on suspicion of failing to stop after a collision. Police seized a 4x4 Discovery and the man was bailed until March pending further inquiries.
