Sir: I read with great interest your two articles ("Skaters get stricter safety code after park death" and "Rollerblading into the future", 11 July) about rollerblading. My organisation has called for a total ban on rollerblading in all the Royal Parks until the full facts of the tragic accident [in which a cyclist died as the result of a crash with a rollerblader] can be fully established. We have also called for the Parks' management to consider whether, in the longer term, they are capable of effecting the necessary control to permit rollerblading in the Royal Parks on a restricted basis.
