In April 2016 an inquest heard that Michael Beard lost control of his bicycle when “braking fiercely” approaching a junction, resulting in him sliding along the road and under the rear wheels of a moving bus. It was suggested that he “may have been rushing”, although police evidence suggested his speed was between 12 and 15mph.

Coroner Paul Smith recorded a verdict of death by road traffic collision.
