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.
