A cyclist has been killed following a collision with an HGV lorry in Homerton.

The incident took place at 4.20pm yesterday at the junction with Mcintosh Lane.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 34-year-old man suffering from critical injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short while later.

Next of kin are in the process of being informed. The driver of the HGV stopped at the scene and is helping police with their enquiries. No arrests have been made.

The cyclist is the second to die on Hackney’s roads in 2015, after 29-year-old Stephanie Turner was killed in Stamford Hill last month.

Police are urging witnesses and anyone with information to call police on 0208 543 5157 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

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.
