Cyclist bus death victim's father 'disappointed'

A motorist who opened his car door in front of a cyclist who was crushed by a bus has been cleared of manslaughter.

Sam Harding, 25, died after crashing into Kenan Aydogdu's car door in Holloway Road, north London, last year.

He had had the windows of his car coated with a dark plastic film which reduced visibility in and out of the car to 17%, the Old Bailey heard.

The cyclist's father Keith Harding says the family is disappointed.
