Cumbria cyclists’ death crash: Coach driver re-bailed

A 42-year-old man arrested after two cyclists died on the A595 in Cumbria has been re-bailed.

Christian David Michael Townend, 29, and Nicholas Rowan Townend, 21, known as Niggy, died in a collision involving a coach near Moota Garden Centre on December 5.

The pair, both experienced cyclists, were killed as they headed home after a bike ride in the Silloth area.

The coach driver from Carlisle was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and interviewed at Workington police station. He has been re-bailed until March 27.

The eldest and youngest of a close family, Christian and Niggy grew up in Lorton and Cockermouth with their brothers Richy and Robin.

In a statement, their family said the brothers were the adored sons of Eleanor and Mike, a former Cockermouth GP, and the grandsons of Anne.

Christian, of High Brigham, worked as a scientific officer for United Utilities at Carlisle’s Wastewater Treatment Works. Niggy, of Moorland Place, Cockermouth, worked at the Kirkstile Inn, Loweswater.

Yes - we shouldn't have to pay

No - we'll just end up paying the county in some other way, like council tax
