A lorry driver involved in a crash that killed a cyclist has been cleared of causing her death.

Magda Tadaj, 25, was hit by the lorry which pulled her under its wheels and dragged her 14 metres in Croydon, south London, in May.

The Old Bailey jury cleared Darren Anderton, 49, of Acacia Road, Nuneaton, of causing death by careless driving.

The jury heard Ms Tadaj had "catastrophic injuries" when she went under the wheels of his lorry.
