A cyclist died on Tuesday morning following a collision with a lorry in Stamford Hill.

The woman was knocked down by a 32 ton waste container lorry, carrying scrap metal lorry making a tight left turn from Seven Sister Rd into Amhurst Park just before 8 am Tuesday, 20 January.

A Met Police spokesperson said:  “Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene and found a female cyclist suffering from critical injuries following a collision with a lorry. “The 29-year-old cyclist died at the scene a short while later.

“The 47-year-old driver of the lorry stopped at the scene and was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has been bailed to return in early April to a north London police Station, pending further enquiries”.

A post-mortem examination held at Hackney Mortuary on Wednesday, 21 January gave cause of death as multiple injuries.
