A 70-year-old cyclist has died after being involved in a collision with a car in Chalk Farm.

Patrick Gorman, of Adelaide Road, died at the Royal Free hospital from head injuries after the collision on Eton Road last Thursday.

It is believed a driver opened the door of a stationary vehicle as Mr Gorman was cycling past.

Officers from the collision investigation unit are still investigating the incident and are appealing for witnesses.

An inquest was opened at St Pancras Coroners' Court on Tuesday but was adjourned to a later date until the completion of the police investigation.

Paramedics and police rushed to the scene at around 10.45am. Witnesses say he was treated on the road for around 30 minutes before being taken to hospital.

Eton Road was closed for most of the morning as the road was examined for clues as to what happened.

No arrests have been made. Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact the collision investigation unit at Alperton Traffic Garage on 020-8998 5319.
