Avon Coroner's Court heard the wheels of Mr Phillips' bicycle may have become trapped in rails which guide the cranes on Prince's Wharf. Mr Phillips, a procurement manager, was seen to suddenly lose balance on his mountain bike before plunging into freezing water nearby.

Avon Coroner Maria Voisin, who reached a conclusion of accidental death, said Mr Phillips' death had prompted a series of changes to make the harbourside safer. The inquest heard there are now signs warning cyclists to use a different route due to the tracks.
