A bar manager has told of her shock after a cyclist was killed in West Hampstead on Saturday morning.

Police and the London Ambulance Service were called at 8.30am after a cyclist had hit a wall in West End Lane, outside the Alice House pub.

When police and paramedics arrived they found a man in his 50s with serious injuries. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Maria Balan was making her way to work at Alice’s House when she saw the aftermath of what had happened.

“When I got to work the ambulance had already arrived,” she said.

She continued: “Paramedics were helping him and there was some blood on the floor. It wasn’t very nice, so I didn’t want to look as I’m not very good with those sort of things.”

“Ambulance and police were there for quite a while.”

Police are not treating the death as suspicious.
