Another needless cyclist death

{Notice attached to the bike:}
Cyclist killed in crash was kindest person - family.
A family has paid tribute to a woman who died in a road collision in central London as "the kindest person in the room".
Cheistha Kochhar, 33, died following a collision with a lorry while cycling in Clerkenwell Road, near the junction with Farringdon Road, on 19 March.

The Indian national was a PhD scholar at the London School of Economics (LSE), her family said in a statement. No arrests have been made and inquires are ongoing, the Metropolitan Police said.

'Always had a hug' .... Ms Kochar was born in Bareilly, in northern India, and worked on a range of roles including in business startups and with various government bodies in her home country. The Met Police said the driver of the lorry was helping with their inquiries and requested anyone with information about the collision or witnesses to get in touch.
