Pot­holes ‘fa­tal for cy­clists’

Daily Star - - News -

CY­CLISTS could die be­cause of rules re­lax­ing re­pairs to pot­holes, an in­quest heard.

Peter Sigee, as­sis­tant coroner for Greater Manch­ester North, said a Gov­ern­ment change in pro­ce­dures “in­creased the risk”.

It fol­lows the death of Roger Hamer, 83, who fell off his bike in Rams­bot­tom, Lancs, last year.

Mr Sigee said that he prob­a­bly died af­ter his bi­cy­cle had hit a pot­hole.
