Family of woman cyclist killed at Oval in June issues witness appeal
Witnesses sought to fatal incident involving green tipper lorry

The family of Catriona Cockburn, the cyclist killed in an incident involving an HGV close to Oval tube station in June, are asking for witnesses to the accident to come forward. Catriona’s husband, Anish Patel, has issued the following appeal:

"My name is Anish Patel and I am the husband of Catriona. On Monday 29th June at around 8.20am, Catriona died as a result of a collision with a green Tipper lorry at Kennington Park Road, at the junction with Harleyford Street.

I would like to make a personal appeal for anyone who was in the Oval area that morning, who saw Catriona or the tipper, to come forward as a potential witness.

Even if you did not see the incident directly, you may still have useful information on the lead up to, or aftermath of the incident. So, please, I urge you to come forward. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, may be crucial to the case.
I and the entire family would like to understand what happened on that day and you may have seen something that is relevant."

Potential witnesses are asked to contact the Collision Investigation Unit Witness Line on 020 8941 9011, or
Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
