An inquest held in January 2016 heard that Daniel Climance was riding behind his father and brother when he collided with an oncoming road sweeper. A witness said that although there was plenty of space for the riders to pass between the parked cars and the sweeper, he saw Daniel “go into a panic” as he approached. Assistant coroner Ian Singleton recorded a verdict of accidental death.
