Mother of Cardiff e-bike crash victim says 'police killed my son'
Two teenage boys, Kyrees Sullivan and Harvey Evans, died after crashing their e-bike on a council estate in Ely, Cardiff, less than two minutes after being followed by a marked police van. Their deaths sparked riots in the deprived council estate as police initially dismissed claims that the teenagers were being chased by police. However, one witness whose CCTV footage captured the moment said the boys appeared scared of the vehicle. The mother of Kyrees Sullivan lashed out at officers, claiming they 'killed my son.' South Wales Police reported itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), which will investigate any interactions officers had with the boys before their deaths. At a press conference, the force's Deputy Chief Constable revealed no officers had been interviewed under caution or suspended over the boys' deaths.
