One of the motorcyclists had to perform an emergency manoeuvre, clipping one of his colleagues, according to local reports and both fell off their bikes. It is being described as an accident and is not believed to be terror related
Mrs May and Mr Michel were on their way from a commemoration at St Symphorien Military Cemetery in Mons, Bergen. Mr Michel stopped the convoy to see how badly injured the officers were, according to Der Standaard. The Prime Minister quoted First World War poetry while she thanked fallen troops for being ‘staunch to the end against odds uncounted’ as she paid her respects to mark the centenary of Armistice.
