Hove cyclist sues council

Paul Kitson, head of personal injury at Russell Jones and Walker, the solicitors representing Ms Vanni, said: “There are a number of reasons why the splitter island installed by the council is poorly conceived and ultimately caused Ms Vanni to be seriously injured.

“The position is dangerous as it is just before a junction, the kerb is low and hard to see on the road and it is not marked in any way, either with signage, bollards or reflective strips. This is contrary to design recommendations.
