IPCC begins investigation into cyclists deaths

The IPCC have begun an independent investigation into the deaths of two cyclists last week in Berkshire.

Thames Valley Police referred the matter after officers in a marked police 4x4 noticed a black BMW which was connected to an earlier reported incident.

A short time later a collision occurred on the A329 between the BMW and two cyclists, who died of their injuries.

The IPCC will examine the circumstances surrounding police actions prior to the collision tomorrow, a week after the crash.

IPCC Associate Commissioner Guido Liguori said:

I would like to offer my condolences to the families of the two cyclists at this very difficult time.

Our independent investigation will seek to establish the circumstances leading up to this tragic event.

Clearly we are at a very early stage of the investigation but I hope to be in a position to release further details very soon."
