The crash scene in Camden Road

A WOMAN who died when her bike collided with a lorry in Camden Town was a student at London Metropolitan University.

Paula Jurek died after the collision at the junction of Camden Road and St Pancras Way last Tuesday (April 6).

She was a 20-year-old from Poland who was studying at London Met in Holloway.

Her friend and fellow student Paul Dean said: “I was shocked and extremely saddened to hear the news.”

A 65-year-old man, who was driving the lorry, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous or careless driving and bailed until June pending further enquiries.
