A 12-year-old cyclist has suffered potentially life-changing injuries after being struck by a lorry outside Borough Station.

The lorry driver, who stopped at the scene, has not been arrested.

Witnesses said the boy’s bike was “broken into two pieces”.

A nearby deli worker said she was opening up when the crash took place.

She told The Standard: “It was outside our shop but we don’t know much about the boy.

“There was a very serious accident a couple of weeks ago at the same spot.”
