A cyclist has been left with "horrendous" injuries after being hit by a lorry in Battersea.

Police were called to Bridges Court outside the Battersea Helipad at 10.17am to reports of a crash.

Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade (LFB) to find a 23-year-old woman trapped under a lorry.

She was treated at the scene by paramedics and then taken to hospital.

A witness said "it was unclear if they had to perform an emergency amputation on both legs, at the road side, or if she ‘could’ lose her legs."

"I saw a lot of sand trailing some 20 to 25 yards covering blood.

"There was also many yellow medical waste bags left at the scene, in what was then, the police cordon."

Her injuries have been assessed as life changing.
