Police have appealed for witnesses after a 30-year-old cyclist died following a hit-and-run in Enfield today.

Officers were called at 01.44 to reports of a collision on Bounces Road near the junction with Exeter Road in Edmonton.

In a statement, police said: “A 30-year-old cyclist had been struck by car which failed to stop. The woman was taken to an east London hospital where she later died. Next of kin have been informed. A post mortem will be scheduled in due course.”

The car which failed to stop was described a small white vehicle, which will have extensive frontal damage and a broken windscreen.

Detectives from the serious collision investigation unit based at Chadwell Heath are investigating and are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, is aware of the location of the car or has any information, to contact them.

A section of Bounces Road is shut between the B137 Montagu Road junction and the St Peter’s Road junction. The probe is also affecting Exeter Road between Bounces Road and Bath Road.

Shopkeepers say have been asked by officers if they have any CCTV footage concerning the collision.

Anyone with information can call the witness appeal line on 020 8597 4874 or alternatively contact police via Twitter @MetCC.
