Cyclist killed by lorry in London today

A male cyclist, believed to be in his early 20s, has been killed in a collision with a lorry at the junction of Snowsfields and Weston Street near Guy's Hospital.

With hideous and bitter irony this fatality coincided with Boris Johnson and Transport for London launching

The dead cyclist was 21 years old.

The vehicle involved in the collision was a tipper lorry
