A cyclist remains in a critical condition after his bike was involved in a collision with a car this morning.

The man, thought to be in his 50s, was taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, after the accident on Charlie Brown’s roundabout in South Woodford at around 10.20am.

He suffered head injuries which police say are “life-threatening”.

A woman has been arrested on suspicion of careless driving.

Last month Transport for London approved plans for crossings and traffic lights to be installed at the roundabout following a series of accidents.
