One shop worker on Pollokshaws Road told us what he heard.

He said: “We heard the horn which is quite normal for the cross, but we didn’t hear the crash from the cars which you’d usually expect. It was just silence. 

“That’s when we realised it must have been a cyclist. Then we saw all the police and everything outside. 

“There wasn’t a bang or anything.
