Another woman cyclist killed in central London

This news has been very slow to emerge:

Tanya Van Der Loo, 33, suffered serious head injuries in a collision with a motorbike on Victoria Embankment near Temple Tube station.

After coming round from a coma she appeared to be making a good recovery before suddenly deteriorating and dying eight days after the accident.

The death brings the toll of cyclists killed in London this year to 11. Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash at 8.20am on 20 October.

The collision took place on the eastbound carriageway of Victoria Embankment
