The family of a cyclist killed in Clapham two years ago have paid tribute to their daughter after the van driver charged with her death was cleared following a trial.

Johannah Bailey, from Rodenhurst Road, Clapham, was heading to meet friends at Tooting Bec Lido when the accident happened on July 31 2011.

The 49-year-old had just turned into Cavendish Road, between the junctions of Abbeville Road and Englewood Road, when she collided with Andrei Dulgher's van.

Ms Bailey was knocked off her bike and pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Speaking after the trial, Mike Bailey, her brother, said: "Johannah, my only sibling, was an amazing young woman with a vibrant spirit who had everything going for her - a close family, proud Mum and Dad, work she enjoyed, a loving partner, great friends, and a good life.

"She was such a vivacious, enthusiastic and loving person, with an instant smile and a wicked sense of humour.

"To lose Johannah in such tragic circumstances left us all stunned.

"There is a huge sense of shock and loss in our lives exacerbated with the knowledge that our family life will never be the same again."

The trial concluded at Inner London Crown Court on Friday (July 19), and Mr Dulgher was cleared of two charges of causing death by dangerous driving.

A spokesman for the Met Police said: "The Road Death Investigation Unit will examine all road deaths in the Metropolitan Police district and will continue to bring to justice those who commit criminal offences."
