Serious injury to cyclist in Southwark renews calls for safer lorries

LCC is renewing its calls for strong action on lorry danger after a cyclist was taken to hospital with serious head injuries on Friday 11 September 2010.

The crash involved a male cyclist and an articulated lorry at the junction of Long Lane and Great Dover Street, SE1.

LCC's chief executive Ashok Sinha said, "Large lorries are the single biggest killer of cyclists in London.

"It's intolerable that this danger is allowed to continue. LCC's five-point plan would go a long way towards reducing danger for London's cyclists."
