Cyclist is critical after a collision with a van

A cyclist involved in a collision with a van in east London is now said to be in a critical condition.

The crash happened in Shoreditch High Street at the Great Eastern Street junction on Saturday at 08:40 BST.

London Ambulance said a 25-year-old man was taken to Royal London Hospital as a priority.

Police said the driver of the van was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and had since been bailed until July pending further inquiries.

The incident happened just a few hours before a rally was held in the city calling for more space for cyclists on London's roads.
