A driver is set to appear in court after a cyclist was knocked off his bike in Sutton.

The cyclist, a 54-year-old man, was hit by a car in Beddington Lane at the junction of Derry Road, near the Shell petrol station, at about 9am on Wednesday.

He was taken to hospital and a Metropolitan Police spokesman said his injuries were not thought to be life threatening or life changing.

Police have charged Denis Farnando, 62, of Crispin Close, Croydon, with driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

He has been bailed to appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court on September 17.
