A female cyclist has been hospitalised after yet another collision with a lorry in central London.
The accident took place on Southwark Street near to Blackfriars Bridge just before 10am this morning. A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service said there was one ambulance and a cycle paramedic on the scene.
Police are also on the scene.
A spokeswoman for the Met told City A.M. the woman, in her 20s, had been taken to hospital, but her injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
The road has been closed eastbound, causing delays and disruption to at least one London bus route.
This is the second incident in a week. Last Monday PwC employee Ying Tao was killed after being knocked over by a tipper truck at Bank junction.
Her death sparked a flash protest organised by the London Cycling Campaign, highlighting the need for greater safety for cyclists on the capital's streets.
