The killing of Eilidh Cairns

GRIEVING relatives and friends of a Northumberland woman who was knocked down and killed as she cycled to work in London have launched a high-profile campaign in a bid to trace eye witnesses to the accident.

Experienced cycling enthusiast Eilidh Cairns, 30, was involved in a collision with a tipper lorry in Notting Hill Gate on her daily commute to work three months ago.

Three months on from the tragedy, Eilidh’s family and friends say the police investigation has resulted in no CCTV footage, no witnesses coming forward and no clear understanding of what happened – despite the accident taking place on a busy main road through west London in the morning rush hour.
