A tragic cyclist who lay unknown in a Derbyshire mortuary for a week was a retired teacher and artist.

Malcolm Cottam, aged 55, of Norton Park Crescent, Norton, was killed in a collision with a car on the Dronfield bypass last Thursday.

Mr Cottam, who taught humanities for 33 years before retiring, was also a key member of the British Trust Conservation Volunteers in Sheffield, and won the charity’s Carbon Army award in 2010, which recognised community champions.
