TOUR de France winner and Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins sped through the borough today along with dozens of other cyclists competing in the Tour of Britain.

Stage two of the eight-stage race started in Nottingham this morning (Monday) and ended at Knowsley Safari Park, passing through - amongst other places - Golborne and Ashton-in-Makerfield along the way.

Former councillor Brian Merry snapped this shot on Bryn Road, Bryn, at around 1.30pm.

Tomorrow’s stage sees the riders tackling the winding roads of Scotland.
