I’m sorry to hear of the collision your constituent was involved in and I hope she has recovered.

The latest available data from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) shows that, in the 36 months to August 2018, there were no recorded personal injury collisions between pedestrians and cyclists in the area approximately 100 metres around the Baker Street station entrance. Due to the way data is collated, figures for 2018 are provisional until published, which is expected to be in July 2019.

I would urge everyone to report any collisions such as this to the Police so that they can be recorded and any appropriate action taken.
