Harriet Harman MP for Camberwell and Peckham said: “It’s tragic that yet another cyclist - a young woman - has been critically injured in Southwark. My thoughts are with her. I want to see London being a safe place for cyclists. That’s why I strongly support Southwark Council’s proposal for a ‘safe cycling hour’ during the morning and evening rush hour, banning HGV’s on the roads at those times. People must be able to cycle to work safely”.
Police and ambulance services were called to Denmark Hill junction with Orpheus Road near Camberwell Green at 07.58 this morning following reports of a road traffic accident involving a lorry and a cyclist. Officers attended and found a female cyclist, aged in her 30’s, suffering serious injuries. The driver of the lorry stopped at the scene and has not been arrested at this time.
