Sad to report
RIP. Such a young age too.
Oh no. Awful, horrible, sad news. RIP rider. Thoughts with your loved ones.
So tough to read. My girlfriend, the same age cycles through Wandsworth every day.
RIP. This happened at a junction roughly between Battersea and Clapham.
No information on what actually occurred yet, e.g. in which directions the lorry and the rider were going.
Saw the tent in the road as I passed and a cement mixer lorry stopped behind the police cordons. Horrible, horrible news. Deepest sympathies to her family.
@Oliver Schick it was at the junction of Wandsworth Road and Silverthorne Road. Cement mixer was parked just east of the junction facing eastbound on Wandsworth Road. Can't say for certain that it was the vehicle involved, but didn't see any other LGVs. Silverthorne Road has its share of those coming from the depot/works at its northern end.
RIP cyclist, so sad and terrifying. Daughter uses that route sometimes.
Thoughts and prayers with their family and loved ones.

Update on this:
A lorry driver has pleaded not guilty to killing a cyclist by careless driving.
Stephen Hempenstall, 49, appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday over the death of 29-year-old Italian design student Gionvanna Capiello.
Ms Capiello, who studied at the University of the Arts, London, died after her bicycle collided with a lorry at a junction on Wandsworth Road, Battersea, west London, on July 4 2019.
Hempenstall, of Thornhill Road, Uxbridge, pleaded not guilty to causing her death by careless driving.
Judge Nigel Lickley QC adjourned the case until July 16 for a trial date and venue to be set.
The defendant was granted continued bail.
