A cycling campaign group has urged Keir Starmer to learn from a collision he was involved in over the weekend that left a cyclist with an injured arm.
Police attended the incident on Sunday, close to the Labour leader’s home in Kentish Town, north London. The male cyclist received a minor injury to his arm and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
Donnachadh McCarthy, the co-founder of Stop Killing Cyclists, said: “We hope this crash will be a wake-up call to Keir Starmer that the Labour party needs to do far more to hold the government to account for failing to invest the £6bn per year needed for protected cycling infrastructure, as advocated by the UN, to enable kids to cycle to school safely, as they do in Holland.”
