Rhyl investigation continues

In the aftermath of the terrible tragedy in North Wales where fours cyclists were killed last Sunday, January 8, British Cycling has instructed Sue Bence, a partner of their solicitors, Leigh Day, and leading barrister William Hoskins, to Wales to represent its members and the other cyclists involved in the accident. North East Wales Coroner John Hughes opened and adjourned inquests into the deaths later on Tuesday, pending a full police investigation. One key issue of the ongoing investigations will be the state of the A547 road where tragedy occurred.

"This road appeared to me and other members of the public to be the same as those road surfaces that had not been treated by gritting," Conwy councillor Darren Millar told the BBC. "The council released a statement saying the road was gritted about 18.20 GMT on Saturday evening. Clearly, the road surfaces were unacceptable and perhaps a second gritting should have taken place."
