clothes and shoes are scattered on the tarmac on the east side of the roundabout.

A large ‘for hire’ construction truck is parked nearby.

Paramedics treated the cyclist after the crash, which happened shortly before 7.45am.

The 39-year-old, who lives in the Homerton area of Hackney,
suffered a fractured ankle and severe facial and shoulder injuries and is being treated at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.

This is the second major accident in the vicinity within the past week.

Last Wednesday (16 February), another female cyclist was injured at the junction of Baldwin Street and City Road.
