A lorry driver has been cleared of causing death by careless driving after cyclist Magda Tadaj died after suffering "catastrophic injuries" in a collision with a lorry in Croydon in May 2016.

The court heard how Miss Tadaj had been hit by the lorry at a narrow point in the road, near the end of a cycle lane. She was pulled under the wheels of the lorry, being dragged for 14 metres before the driver, Darren Anderton, came to a stop.
