A cyclist died two days after he was hit by a car in Homerton.

The 27-year-old man was taken to hospital for treatment on September 10 following the crash in Kenworthy Road.

Hackney Gazette reported last month that the cyclist was in a critical condition after being hit by a car just after 7.30pm that evening.

Police have now confirmed that the man died of his injuries on September 12.

His next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

The driver of the car – a 24-year-old woman – has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) by dangerous driving.

She has been bailed pending further enquiries until a date in early December.

Detectives from the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit have now released a new appeal for information about the crash.

They are urging anyone who witnessed the collision, or any road users with camera footage, to come forward.
