The woman, who is believed to be in her 20s, was treated at the scene by paramedics at around 10am.

On Saturday a woman in her 50s was left in a critical condition after her bike and a van crashed near the Airman pub in Hanworth Road, Feltham, in west London.

Around 500 cyclists are expected to stage a protest at Bank today after a woman died after being hit by a tipper truck in the area earlier this month - marking the eighth cyclist fatality in the capital this year.

Police were called by LAS to Previous Southwark Street junction with Blackfriars Road, SE1 at approximately 09:59 hours following a report of a collision involving a lorry and a cyclist.

The female cyclist believed to be in her 20s has been taken to hospital with non life threatening injuries.
