A cyclist has died in a collision involving a car in London.

The crash happened near the junction of Bestwood Street and Evelyn Street, a busy road in Deptford, in the south-east of the city, at about 10:15 BST.

The driver of the car stopped and paramedics attended, but the man died at the scene.

The crash comes months after another cyclist died in a hit-and-run on Childers Street, about a mile away from Saturday's crash.

The Metropolitan Police said officers were working to identify the man and inform his next-of-kin.

Road closures and bus diversions are in place and motorists have been advised to avoid the area.
