Cyclist Nicolas Keeler, 44, died at the scene after the collision with a car on Radlett Road, near High Cross, on Sunday at around 12.40am. He was cycling back from a shift at the Just Eat call centre in Borehamwood.

A 41-year-old man from Watford and a 25-year-old woman from Wilsden have both been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. Both have since been released.
