Camden cyclist stable, but serious condition

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.
