Ghost bike placed on Carholme Road in memory of cyclist death
A ghost bike has been placed at the scene Matthew Tuffin was hit by a police car in his memory.
A ghost bike or ghostcycle is a bicycle set up as a roadside memorial in a place where a cyclist has been killed or severely injured.
Apart from being a memorial, it is usually intended as a reminder to passing motorists to share the road.
Ghost bikes are usually junk bicycles painted white, sometimes with a placard attached, and locked to a suitable object close to the scene of the accident.
