A 16-year-old Streatham Vale cyclist has died after a road collision in Tooting this morning.

Officers were called to the scene after receiving reports of a collision between an articulated lorry and a cyclist in Tooting High Street at the junction with Blackshaw Road just after 8.30am.

The cyclist was rushed to St George’s Hospital, Tooting, by ambulance where he died.
