POLICE are hoping to re-open a road in Stanmore following a fatal accident this morning.

Edgware Way has been closed since around 7.30am after a woman was knocked off her bike on the northbound carriageway.

She was pronounced dead at the scene and an investigation has been ongoing all morning into the cause of the crash.

Officers are hoping to be able to re-open the road in the next half an hour to alleviate some of the traffic problems which it has caused.

Motorists have been queueing back to The Broadway, Stanmore, and into Barnet as a result of the road closure.

The victim of the crash has not yet been identified.
