A cyclist who was convicted after the death of a pedestrian has been sentenced to 18 months in jail.
Charlie Alliston, a 20-year-old from London, was found guilty of furious drivingunder section 35 Offences Against the Person Act 1861 at the Old Bailey on Wednesday 23 August.
Police responded to reports of a collision on Old Street in February 2016, at 12:20pm.
Kim Briggs, a 44-year-old mother of two was hit by Alliston as he was riding his bicycle while crossing the road.
Briggs was taken to the Royal London Hospital by the Royal Ambulance Service. She died in hosptial a week later.
After a post mortem examination it was revealed that Briggs died as a result of a severe head injury.
Alliston's bicycle was examined. He was riding a fixed wheel bicycle which didn't have a front brake at the time of the collision.
This means this particular bike requires a longer stopping distance than other bikes.
The examination determined that Alliston's bicycle shouldn't have been in use on a public road.
Alliston was interviewed by police in March following the incident. He was charged in September 2016.
He was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.
