Torrington Road closed at its junction with Wallasey Road :-

Torrington Road still closed at 13.00 Hrs, buses rerouted down Wallasey Road onto Marlowe Road.

feel sorry for the person on the bike for their injuries but i can't count how many times i've seen people take their lives in their hands cycling through red lights and diagonally on that junction. i'm not saying it was his fault, but at that spot, a cyclist was always going to be injured.

Totally agree, and when the kids are going to and from school they don't stop for anybody, but this junction must be one of the worst in town for cars jumping red lights it's a prime candidate for cameras.

No cycle helmet isn't illegal (I don't cycle with a helmet either, it's nothing to moan about, it's personal preference) but the thing that irks me with the law is a cyclist could be 100% in the wrong and crash into the car or give the car zero options but crash into them and in the eyes of the law, the cyclist is innocent and the driver is guilty regardless. That's not opinion, that's fact. And as a driver, cyclist and pedestrian, that law is a joke & needs changing. I feel more sorry for the driver having hit a 15yo lad and the psychological damage and also the financial damage to fix his car.
