The Metropolitan Police have confirmed another cyclist has died in London following a collision with a lorry at the notorious Elephant & Castle roundabout. The accident took place at around 4pm today. Though the air ambulance was called, the male rider died at the scene.

The roundabout was described as “a terrible place for cycling and walking” by the London Cycling Campaign. Today’s accident took place at the southern roundabout, which is not proposed for improvements in the current Transport for London programme.
