The well-known bicycle at Harold's Cross Bridge was removed by council workers today.

Many will be familiar with the ghost bike, having been installed in 2009 to mark the spot where cyclist Zu Zhang Wong was tragically killed by a lorry turning onto the bridge.

Since the accident the bicycle had acted as a memorial to the fallen Chinese man and a reminder to cyclists to take care at the spot.

According to our friends at Broadsheet.ie, Dublin City Council workers removed the ghost bike today as part of an initiative to tackle abandoned bicycles.
