Borough High Street was closed to traffic on Wednesday lunchtime when a Keltbray tipper truck was involved in a collision with a cyclist at the junction with Great Dover Street.

Police officers at the scene said that the cyclist was taken to hospital with a suspected broken ankle.

In February Professor David Vilaseca was killed in a collision between a bike and a lorry in Tower Bridge Road. A month later medical student Haris Ahmed died in Weston Street.

Another cyclist was injured in Southwark Bridge Road in April.
