i dont know why the police bother arresting any driver in the UK who kills a cyclist.

Just give the driver a fine and be done with it. That's all they ultimately ever get anyway.

Not necessarily. In joy riding cases, for example, all occupants of a car can be charged with the same offence as the driver since they are engaged in a common crime.

Similarly, the five men convicted in 2010 of manslaughter following the death of a cyclist in South East London; only two of those were driving.

We don't know what the circumstances of this case are at the moment - but joyriding, or two drivers racing each other are certainly other possible reasons why more than one person was charged.

Two people arrested? If it was just one vehicle involved, then was it a provisional driver + their accompanying fully licensed driver?
