As you maybe able to guess from the user name we are Richard's family and we would like to thank you for your kind thoughts, Richard is doing better than first thought, he was in surgery for 7 hours to help fix his leg doctor, still concerned about circulation in his leg, it's gonna be a long road to recovery. Please take extra care on the roads.

All the best wishes to you all and of course to Richard especially. It sounds like very serious injuries. It is good to hear that Richard got medical attention so quickly, and here' s hoping that the doctors succeed.

Vauxhall Cross is simply one of the worst junctions in London, partly owing to TfL's reluctance to redesign it radically. The last redesign didn't go anywhere near far enough.

Heal fast to both guys involved in yesterdays accidents, nothing worse than seeing it happen, can give you a bit of a shake. Hope you recover fully chaps.

The LCEF's big 'summer' fundraiser is this weekend so if you did want to offer the fund some support in the form of your good selves and your hard-earned then come along to The Macbeth in Hoxton on Friday, we'll be bringing hoodies, T's and hats along to sell at street prices - all welcome.

Our thoughts are with Richard, who had a lucky escape, considering.

Particularly glad to hear that Richard's doing well since on the day itself, some idiot in CycleSurgery at Victoria started doing the 'oh, my pal's a cop and he said it was fatal' rumourmongering at lunchtime. Tosser!

Hope the surgeries are going well... best wishes to you and family

Update on Richard, he's been back into surgery twice this week for his legs, he's going back in to surgery again on Monday, he will still need quite a few more operations. He got fitted for a wheelchair yesterday and is now mobile around the ward at least. He is in remarkably good spirits.

Message from Richard: Hiya everybody, just woke up from surgery with a big skin graft taken from my left thigh, means my right foot is finally safe from being used as a paper weight in Dr Frankenstein's office!! Only have to recover now. All visit's welcome now, as long as they're accompanied by a can of Fosters or a Double cheeseburger!!!
