London Traffic Deaths Vigil

City Hall, London. Fri 10 Jun 2016

  

 
 BMX Life riders gather close to City Hall. BMX rider Dan “Cash” Stephenson was taking part in one of their

 charity rides last weekend when he was hit by a bus on the Strand, dying later in hospital.

 Many of them wore tartan ribbons, or had them on their bikes in his memory, as he always wore tartan on the rides.

 Since Mayor Sadiq Khan was elected a month ago, 11 people have been killed on London streets, three cyclists

 and eight on foot. One of them was only three, and as well as a flower there was a small bear.

 

 There were other flowers, and a wreath with a dedication for Dan Stephenson
