It is indeed a terrible tragedy - so how come you devote most of your report to the anticipated effect on motorists and buses, rather than on the tragedy itself?

I am a London cyclist; I am saddened by the death of any road user and the death of another cyclist is shocking. I think 11 this year. The radio reports this afternoon were that the lorry did not stop; this article makes no mention either way. Let's hope the police investigation gets to the core of exactly what happened.
