The cyclist injured in a crash with the driver of a police car in City Road does not have life-changing injuries, the force has said. 

The Met's Directorate of Professional Standards is investigating after police responding to an emergency in a marked vehicle collided with the man who was riding his bike at about 5.15pm on Sunday (May 23).

The 43-year-old cyclist was treated at the scene before being taken to an east London hospital by ambulance. 

Scotland Yard said today the man's injuries have been "assessed as non-life changing".
