A London roundabout where a cyclist was killed in 2015 and which is undergoing a widely-criticised redesign has been named as the scene of more cycling casualties than anywhere else in Great Britain, according to research published in The Sunday Times.
Moira Gemmill, aged 55, was crushed to death by a tipper lorry driven by James Kwatia, 41, in April 2015 at a roundabout on Millbank at the north end of Lambeth Bridge.
Kwatia will stand trial next month on charges of causing her death by careless driving.
According to research carried out by data analysts Mapmechanics, the junction was the scene of 53 incidents that resulted in a cyclist being killed or injured between 2009 and 2015.
Transport for London (TfL) was heavily criticised in December after it unveiled plans for a temporary redesign of the road layout around the roundabout ahead of launching a consultation over permanent changes.
