Standard is reporting that there has been another cycling fatality in Holborn today, the 6th in 9 years. It involved an HGV and happened very near where Alan Neve was killed in 2013. RIP unknown rider. According to Twitter, it was a female cyclist.
Ride in Peace unknown cyclist.
RIP unknown rider :(
Oh no. Horrible. RIP rider.
RIP Rider, love and thoughts to all those who knew and loved you.
🙏 My thoughts to their family and friends.
So sad. The report says she was hit at the High Holborn/Procter Street junction, yet the tent is shown very close to the Kingsway/High Holborn junction. The article rightly links to Alan Neve's death in 2013:
Updated report. LCC is holding a vigil there on Friday at 6pm.
So so sad. RIP cyclist ride on beyond.
RIP. Thoughts are with the rider.
Very emotional to hear of yet another death at this junction.
will be there at the vigil on friday. RIP rider.
So sad, so overwhelmingly depressing.
Thoughts with everyone who loved this poor woman.
She has been named. RIP Shatha Ali.
Really infuriating and sad. Such a pointless tragedy.
Rest in peace Shatha
Imagine all of this happening and people being aware of the dangers of cycling in London AND STILL calling for less LTN less cycleways etc. Similarly anyone who cycles on Whitechapel road or near E1,as I do on the daily, is also keenly aware of the hazards that lorry / taxi / whitevan / (unt drivers pose. Anything past Mile End road junction is also a free for all with idiots speeding and overtaking with little regard to vulnerable road users. Absolutely mad!
Apologies for rant,
RIP rider. How sad.
Can't make the vigil sadly...RIP.
