The raised curb on the gyratory has caused some cyclists to come off their bikes

Cyclists have raised concerns over a new cycle lane in Brighton after a number of riders crashed into a newly raised kerb.

The lane at the Vogue Gyratory on Lewes Road was built as part of a £600,000 investment project.

However, there have been reports of three accidents on Friday with two riders being taken to hospital.

Brighton and Hove City Council said warning signs had been installed and that feedback had been generally good.

A spokeswoman said: "Cycle representatives were involved in the new design of the new junction, and we will involve them in any future review.

"Most cyclists using the new facilities have had no problems and the feedback we've had has been generally good."
