The 20-year-old was cycling near the junction with Amhurst Road when her bike collided with a car.

She was rushed to hospital by medics with head injuries said to be life threatening. But this morning Scotland Yard said her condition had improved and her injuries are no longer thought to be life threatening or life changing.

Police were called just after 4.20am and Mare Street was closed for two hours between Amhurst Road and Graham Road.

The driver of the car stopped at the scene. They were not arrested and are assisting police with their enquires.

Enquires continue.
