A 57-year-old man has been arrested following the death of a cyclist in Barking yesterday morning, police said.

The lorry driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving at the scene of the collision before being taken into custody and bailed pending further investigation.

The cyclist, a 35-year-old father named Brian, was pronounced dead at the scene on Ripple Road (the A13 westbound) close to the Ship and Shovel pub.

The collision took place shortly after 10.20am.

His next of kin has been informed and a post-mortem examination and inquest will take place in due course.

This morning floral tributes were placed at the scene. One appeared to be from the man’s daughters and read: “Daddy, help us. Lauren and Holli.”

Police are now investigating the circumstances. Anyone with information should call 0208 597 4874 or speak anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
