The woman who died in a fatal road traffic collision in Teynham on Saturday 13 February has been named by her family.

Senior investigating officer Sergeant Hannah Brown said: ‘The HGV and the cyclist were both heading towards Sittingbourne when the collision occurred opposite the Swan pub.

‘We have already spoken to a number of witnesses but are keen to speak to anyone else who saw the incident and has yet to speak to us, or who saw the cyclist or the HGV prior to the collision.’
