Family's anger over courier's death
By Jack Rivlin
London Evening Standard,  Feb 9, 2012
The family of a cycle courier killed in a collision with an airport coach spoke of their anger today and called on the Mayor and the Prime Minister to do more to protect cyclists.
Henry Warwick, 53, died at Bishopsgate last Friday.
His brother Ed, 45, who lived with him and their 84-year-old mother in West Drayton, said: "In the first instance our anger is directed towards the large vehicles who don't see cyclists ahead of them. But overall we feel the Government - not only Boris Johnson but David Cameron - should do more for the safety of cyclists."
He said his brother had called for compulsory proficiency tests for cyclists in London and designated stopping places where they could dismount safely.
The coach driver has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving.
Mr Warwick said he and his mother are considering seeking compensation.
