"Accidental" ...

A case of "someone cocked it up" which means nobody is held accountable for the death of a cyclist:

"An inquest into the death of a cyclist who was hit by a lorry in Old Trafford has recorded a verdict of accidental death"

I shudder at the velvety, cushioned language in which the Police try to obfuscate what they reluctantly admit: that CCTV footage which would have been needed for a successful prosecution, was lost due to their actions (or lack of).

One should ask Andrea Leadsom whether she thinks her tinkering with the law in recent months will help address injustices like this.
