Twitter has reports of a fatality on Mile End Road cycle superhighway apparently involving a tipper truck. Can anyone confirm?
Sadly it's true. Male cyclist . No age range given by police.
Appears to have involved a lorry on one of the blue superhighways.
Now confirmed by BBC's Tom Edwards from Met Police. RIP unknown rider :-(
