The cyclist who died after a collision with a tipper lorry in Bow has been identified as Brian Dorling, aged 58, who worked on the Olympic site.

Mr Dorling, from Hounslow, was pronounced dead at the scene, last Monday at around 8.45am, after the accident on a Bow Road junction with the A12 at Payne Road.

Mr Dorling, who was as a senior cost consultant, at the Olympic site, is the first cyclist to be killed on London Mayor Boris Johnson's ‘cycle superhighway'.

The male lorry driver who stopped at the scene, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. He was later bailed to return to an East London police station in November pending further enquiries.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit at Chadwell Heath are investigating

Anyone with information is urged to call the incident room on 020 8597 4874.
