Just over a year after four members of Rhyl CC were killed in North Wales, Birkenhead North End CC suffered a similar tragedy on Sunday when a car was in collision with a group of 24 riders from the club, killing one rider and injuring two more.

Mel Vasey, 53, who had been a member of the club for 15 years, was killed in the accident, which happened on the A540 at Two Mills, Wirral, as the riders approached the popular Eureka Cafe (pictured in the summer).
