Police investigating the death of a cyclist in Swanley this morning are appealing for dash cam footage from anyone who may have been driving by at the time.

Officers from Kent Police and the Met were called to the incident in London Road shortly before 11.30am to assist paramedics on-site.

According to Kent Police, the crash happened close to the junction for Hockenden Lane where a grey Peugeot 308 estate car collided with the cyclist, who was pronounced dead at the scene. 

A spokeswoman for London Ambulance Service has said: 

"We were called at 11.12am today (8 January) to reports of a road traffic collision on London Road, Swanley.

"We sent an incident response officer, a single responder in a car and also dispatched London's Air Ambulance. 

"Sadly, despite the efforts of our medics, a person died at the scene."

An air ambulance was spotted landing in the area earlier this morning also.

A spokeswoman for London Air Ambulance has said: "Our advanced trauma team were dispatched by London Ambulance Service at 11.17 today via aircraft to reports of a road traffic accident in the Foots Cray area."

Investigating officer PC Chris Oliver-Jones from the Kent Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: "The collision happened approximately 290 metres north west of the A20 slip road and we believe both the push bike and car were travelling towards London at the time.
