The police investigation is ongoing.

In the CCTV footage, the two women are seen riding along the cycling lane as a single scooter occupies the main lane.

The driver seems to change lane to either overtake the scooter or to intentionally hit one or both of the women.

The vehicle then rams both bikes at speed, sending the two women flying through the air before landing hard on the tarmac.
