Police have named a cyclist who was killed on a cycle superhighway in east London.

Hospital porter Brian Holt, 62, from Aldgate, died on Tuesday after a collision with a tipper lorry on CS2 on Mile End Road.

Mr Holt is the third cyclist to have died on CS2, which a coroner recently described as "confusing".

Transport for London said nine cyclists had died on London's roads so far this year, compared with 14 in 2012.

The driver stopped and was interviewed by police under caution and has not been arrested, police said.

G4S, which provides some staff at the hospital, said: "His loss has been a huge shock to everyone who worked with him, and he will be very much missed.

"We have been in contact with Brian's wife to offer our support and condolences."

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses to the incident.
