Police appeal after cyclist killed in Archway road crash

Police are appealing for information about the death of a cyclist who was killed in a road crash just hours after the successful first RideLondon festival gave a boost to the sport.

The man in his late 60s died after a crash with a lorry in Archway Road, north London, which led to renewed calls for city streets to be made safer for cycling.

The London Ambulance Service, which sent an air ambulance and two ambulance crews after being alerted at 9.40am, said its staff made "extensive efforts" to try to save his life.

Traffic officers from Northolt Road Death Investigation Unit are looking in to the incident and there have been no arrests, Scotland Yard said.
