Kim Briggs, 44, was hit by a cyclist while crossing the road in Old StreetJust Giving

Tributes have been paid to a "wonderful and much-loved" mother-of-two who died after a collision with a cyclist in east London. Kim Briggs, 44, was crossing the street near Old Street on 12 February when she was involved in the crash.

The incident, which occurred at 12.20pm close to the junction with Charlotte Road, saw the HR executive taken to Royal London Hospital. She died a week later, on 19 February, after failing to recover from a serious head injury.

Her husband, Matthew Briggs, paid tribute to his wife, saying: "A wonderful wife, an amazing mummy, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, niece, colleague and caring friend to so many, Kim was so dearly loved and will be so greatly missed."

A donation page has been set up in her memory by her family, raising money for the London Ambulance Service (LAS) and Winston's Wish, a charity helping children deal with the loss of a parent.

Officers say the cyclist involved in the collision stopped at the scene and there have been no arrests made. Police today (9 March) issued a public appeal for any witnesses to come forward and contact police on 020 8597 4874 or via 101.
