'The love of my life': Girlfriend pays tribute to cyclist killed by Olympic bus Dan Harris
Friday 03 August 2012
The girlfriend of the cyclist who died after being run over by an official London 2012 bus near the Olympic park today described him as “the love of my life”.
Daniel Harris, from Ilford, died on Wednesday night after being hit by a bus carrying journalists in Stratford, east London.
His girlfriend, Cecilia Dominici, yesterday posted a photo of her and Mr Harris and tweeted the caption: "My silly english boy, the love of my life, my boo. I don't know how to live without you."
Ms Dominici went on, tweeting from her profile (ceciliadom): "Thank you for the kind messages and lovely words about our relationship. gecko84 (Mr Harris's twitter handle) would have been deeply moved."
Safety campaigners said Mr Harris was the 10th cyclist to die in London since January, the same number as in the whole of 2010.
At this rate, the number of cyclists killed on London's roads will exceed last year's death toll of 16, campaign groups fear.
An inquest into Mr Harris's death has been opened and adjourned until August 31 at Poplar Coroner's Court.
The incident prompted widespread calls to improve safety for road cyclists, and the campaign for bike safety found support in cycling gold medal winner Bradley Wiggins.
After the death of Mr Harris on Wednesday, a 65-year-old man was arrested at the scene at 9.28pm on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. Mr Harris was hit by the double-decker just after 7.30pm.
The man has been bailed pending further inquiries to a date in late August.
