Campaigners will light candles as a vigil and ‘die-in’ is hosted to mourn the loss of two cyclists.

Hosted by campaign group Stop killing Cyclists, hundreds of people are expected to gather in front of the Bank of England this evening as part of a vigil and ‘die-in’ being held to mark the deaths of two cyclists.

Clifton James, 60, died after a collision with a car in Forward Drive, Harrow, as he cycled home to Cullington Close, Harrow, from work shortly after midnight on Sunday June 21.

The driver of the car, a 31-year-old man, was arrested and has since been bailed to a date in September on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The vigil is also being held to remember Ying Tao, who died as a result of her bicycle being hit by a lorry at Bank on the morning of June 22.

Stop Killing Cyclists co-organiser Nicola Branch said: “Enough is enough. The City of London and Transport for London must make our streets safer for cyclists and pedestrians.

“Our protest is calling on the Mayor of London to summon an emergency Killer Tipper Truck summit to deal with the plague killing London’s cyclists.”

Protesters will meet outside the Bank of England at 5.30pm tonight, and are asked to bring candles and placards.
