Heath Road in Twickenham is closed following a rush-hour collision between a car and a cyclist today.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene, outside Rileys pool and snooker club, shortly before 4.45pm.

A woman was taken to hospital after a witness said she collided with a red Peugeot, causing her to land on top of the roof.

Kim Dean said: “She went from the windscreen, flew on top and was holding on to the roof.

“They [the emergency services] got here very quickly.”

A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman confirmed the patient was fully conscious.

Police sealed off the road at the junction at the junction with King Street and are directing cars down Cross Deep.
