Hackney youth charity backs Hackney Cycle Safe after death of Shivon Watson
A Hackney youth charity has backed the Gazette’s Hackney Cycle Safe campaign following the death of Shivon Watson last year.
Shivon, a singer and fashion designer, died after her bicycle collided with a tipper truck on the Victoria Park Road roundabout in South Hackney on the morning of March 10.
The 28-year-old of Campbell Road, Bow, was trapped between the lorry and railings as they both turned left.
She was on her way to Fairbridge youth charity in Bayford Street, Hackney Central, where she worked as a team administrator.
Chris Murray, team manager at Fairbridge, told the Gazette: “Of course Fairbridge will support this campaign.

“At Fairbridge we have been running many bike projects that involve road safety and maintenance with our young people.”
