A young cyclist remains in a serious, but stable condition in hospital this morning after a collision with a lorry in Camden yesterday afternoon.

One person has been arrested and police are appealing for witnesses and information.

The collision happened just before 4pm yesterday and the woman, in her 20s was taken to hospital immediately.

I need to hear from anybody who witnessed the collision or the moments leading up to it. I am particularly keen to speak with a pedestrian who was crossing Delancey Street at the time of the collision, and a cyclist who was riding a short distance ahead of the cyclist injured.
