A cyclist who was airlifted to hospital after being hit by a dust cart has died.

The 40-year-old was hit in Kew Foot Road by the A316 in Richmond during yesterday’s morning rush hour.

He was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital but died this afternoon, July 22.

His next of kin are aware, police said.

Formal identification was yet to take place and no post-mortem examination has been scheduled.

The driver stopped but was not arrested.

Detective Sergeant John Hartfree, of the serious collision investigation unit based at Merton, said: “The road would have been very busy at the time of the collision and I believe that a number of people would have seen the incident.

“I would urge anyone with information to contact us on the witness appeal number 020 8543 5157.”
