The parents of a cyclist who was killed after a crash with a car have described their “grief and devastation” as “unbearable”.

Harry Webb, 27, has been named as the victim of a fatal crash which took place in Kenworthy Road, Homerton, on September 10.

His parents have said that he was on his way to swim at the lido when he was in collision with the car at around 7.30pm that evening.

Harry was taken to hospital and, despite efforts to save his life, died two days later.

Parents Pat and Mike Webb have now described their only child as a “kind, warm, generous and loving person”.

The 27-year-old had completed a master’s in philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, and was studying for a further master’s at London College of Contemporary Music when he was killed.

His parents said: “Harry was bright, engaging and loved the challenge of learning new things and travelling to new places.

“He has had a lifelong love of music, he was a drummer, pianist and composed music.”

They added that they had dropped their son off in London on the day of the crash, and received the emergency call just hours after returning to Wales.

Harry’s parents said their son believed the roads of London could be made much safer, and that they hoped they could help to prevent further tragedies by speaking out.

They described their “grief and devastation” as “unbearable”.

The driver of the car which collided with Harry – 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.

Hackney Cycling Campaign is set to hold a protest ride starting in Mabley Street at 5.30pm this evening (October 18) to call for improvements to Kenworthy Road.

The ride will also stop in Whiston Road, where a 36-year-old woman was killed after she was in collision with a car while on a bike on September 21.

Police are still urging anyone who witnessed the collision which killed Harry, or any road users with camera footage, to come forward.
