The sheriff who presided over the inquiry into the death of Olympic cycling hopeful Jason MacIntyre has urged cyclists to wear helmets and to ensure they are visible to other road users.

Mr MacIntyre, 33, was on a training spin on the A82 Inverness-Fort William road when a pick-up turned across his path and he crashed into its side.

Sheriff Douglas Small has also asked Highland Council to carry out a feasibility study into providing a traffic island at the crash scene at the entrance to its Carr’s Corner depot at Fort William.
