A cyclist has died in a lorry crash in Stamford Hill.

The collision took place on Amhurst Park near the junction with Seven Sisters Road at 8am this morning.

London Ambulance Service attended the scene but the 29-year-old woman died from her injuries.

The driver of the lorry stopped and was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has been bailed to return, pending further enquiries.

Next of kin have been informed but officers await formal identification.

Officers are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision to call police on 020 8597 4874.

The coronavirus outbreak sadly means the Hackney Citizen is unable to print a monthly newspaper for the first time in its 12-year history.

At a time when independent and trusted news is more important than ever, this was an incredibly difficult decision to have to make.

Without print advertising, our major source of income, a one-off donation from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the website and social media feeds running through this unprecedented crisis.

When Hackney and the wider world has fought off this virus and we return to some semblance of normality, the print edition will be back.
