Walkers must have rights, too


THE death of Celia Ward, a 77-year-old cyclist who veered off the pavement into the path of a car, was a tragedy.

But did Auriol Grey, the woman who shouted at her to get off the pavement, deserve a three-year prison sentence for manslaught­er? I don’t believe so.

A cyclist has no business on a pavement. I’ve been hit by one in the past and have had to dodge endless electric scooters.

Drivers and cyclists demand to be safe. But we pedestrian­s need safe spaces, too.
