British Cycling were saddened to hear of the death of a cyclist in London this morning after a brilliant weekend of cycling in the capital.

The vast majority of cycling deaths in London are caused by HGVs and it is essential that we act now. The mayor has promised to study the policy options to remove HGV danger and we urge him to deliver on that without delay.
