Chilling moment 'loner' pedestrian lies to cops after she killed OAP cyclist who fell in road following pavement clash | The Sun

THIS is the chilling moment a pedestrian lied to cops after she killed a cyclist who fell in the road following a pavement clash.

Auriol Grey, 49, claimed she only told 77-year-old Celia Ward to "slow down" before the horror crash.

But she had actually gestured in a "hostile and aggressive" way to Celia and told her to "get off the f***ing pavement".

Shocking footage showed the cyclist veering into the road where she was then hit by a car.

Grey was jailed this month for for three years after being convicted of manslaughter.

The Crown Prosecution Service has now released further footage of Grey being interviewed by cops after the horror.

Grey first claims: ""I think [I just said] 'slow down, just slow down', yeah."

A police officer then tells her: "We don't need to keep watching the bit where the lady gets hit by the car. Did you hear what was said there by yourself?"

Grey remains silent, but eventually replies, "Not quite, no. I couldn't really hear it.

"I can't remember…I don't know."

The two women were passing each other on the street in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, in October 2020 when the horror unfolded.

Grey, who suffers from cognitive and mobility issues and is partially sighted, could be seen raising her hand as Celia cycled towards her on the pavement.

The retired midwife then lost her balance and staggered into the road in the path of an oncoming VW Passat.

Shockingly, Grey then fled on foot to Sainsbury's to buy her shopping as paramedics were scrambled to the scene.

She claimed she felt "anxious" as the bike was travelling "fast" in the middle of the pavement.

Grey also suggested she could have lifted her hand "unintentionally" as Celia cycled towards her.

Although it is illegal to cycle on the pavement, the court was told police could not "categorically" state whether the street was a shared cycleway.

But sentencing Grey, Judge Sean Enright said she was "territorial about the pavement" and "resented" the cyclist being there.

Following the sentencing, Celia's daughter Gillian Hayter said: "The lack of any remorse from the accused cannot be underestimated in having a profound effect on us all.

"I can still remember the details of the conversation on hearing my mother was killed in a cycling accident.
