The death of Sayit Huseyin

TRIBUTES have been paid to a "cycle fanatic" who died after falling off his bike in "treacherous" icy conditions as he pedalled to work along a quiet backstreet.

Sayit Huseyin, 50, a chef at Fish Central, in King Square, Finsbury, was just 200 metres from the popular restaurant when he came off his bike in nearby Dingley Road shortly after 9am on Friday.

Police have spoken to the driver of a silver Mercedes which was passing him on the opposite side of the road and are investigating whether there may have been any minor contact with his bike

"It was treacherous. As soon as he was carried away the area was cordoned off
and the council came down to grit the street."
