Hundreds of people are expected in Bloomsbury Square this evening for a “die in” vigil to remember a cyclist killed in Holborn 10 days ago.
Federica Baldassa, 26, was hit by a lorry in Vernon Place. He is the third cyclist to die on London’s roads this year.
Last week, 300 people gathered on Homerton High Street and lay on the road with their bikes to observe a two minute silence as a sign of respect.
They brought traffic to a standstill. London Live spoke to the campaign group Stop Killing Cyclists, who explained the die in and the problems with road safety in London.
The memorial came as Scotland Yard announced they were relauching Operation Safeway following a tripling of road deaths in 2015 since 2014.
