A prime example of over enthusiastic reporting before true facts are known which stirs up comments from those equally not knowing the true facts – a common occurrence with commenters on here! It starts with a male knocked from a bike and ends with a female having failed brakes! Nevertheless a nasty incident for her and I hope she recovers well and swiftly.
