In May we reported on the removal of the ghost bike placed by Bricycles
at Devil’s Dyke, the scene of James Danson Hatcher’s death. This
weekend The Sun ran a story on the ghost bike removal titled "Fury over axed ghost bike".
The Sun reported that "A GRIEVING dad told of his fury yesterday after a "ghost bike" memorial to his dead son was removed without his knowledge."
The Council said the police were concerned it posed a distraction to drivers. Bricycles strongly disagrees that the stationary ghost bike with its discreet sign presented any road hazard at all. The real road hazard at this junction is created by speeding motor vehicles which should be slowed down, but still no action has been taken about that.
