    Very sad. It is also unfair the later BBC page says '... when his bike collided with a vehicle' suggesting he was at fault. Why not something neutral like his bike was in collision with a vehicle or something. Typical tabloid attitude.

    think you are making something out of nothing. All accidents are reported in this way vehicle, cycle or otherwise

    Is this the 5 minute argument, or the full half hour?
