The article mentions "accidents can take place on a shared facility" as an excuse for cycling on the road rather than the cycle lane in a pavement. The pessimistic would note that the roadway is a shared facility too, but with cyclists and pedestrians not insured, and motorists having a compulsory insurance requirement.
Then again, with things like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzE-IMaegzQ and http://wcc.crankfoot.xyz/facility-of-the-month/, not all cycle lanes are all that useful.
But given the Norwich approach seems to have involved narrowing roads thus making it more difficult to share the roadway between motorists and cyclists, then perhaps cyclists could choose a more reasonable place to cycle.
And that includes not swearing at me when they cycle in to me while I'm walking on a not shared pavement.

Oh stuff it.
Driving is a privilege, not a right the insurance for which needs subsidising.
Insurance for the rest of us driving a Mundano is quite expensive enough.

Well, some news about the advancement of scientific knowledge.
Far more interesting than all the worthless political backstabbing and self-promotion that floods the news.

I suppose much will depend upon how one defines "news".
I mean, EDP have run a couple stories that are not what I'd consider newsworthy. I mean, some pretty lass going for some mermaid thing may be important to her, but I really don't see how it's newsworthy. Likewise, some photographer seeking subjects; not really news, is it now?
An anonymous hypothetical ICT support organisation hypothetically spending hypothetical money on branded polo shirts for staff, however, may be news.

Seems the iphone was incidental.
Bath full of water + live mains extension lead is never going to end well though.
Best to keep all electronics out of the bathroom.

What everyone wants to see. :-(
At least they came back up after a reboot and could be --re-added.
