First pictures of Camden Road crash victim

THE first images have emerged of a London Met student who died when her bike collided with a lorry.

Paula Jurek died following an accident at the junction of Camden Road and St Pancras Way, Camden Town, last Tuesday.

The 20-year-old from Poland was studying tourism at London Metropolitan University in Holloway.

Her friend Paul Dean, 31, paid tribute to Paula, who he met when they both began a French evening class at London Met in December.

He said: “She was an extremely kind and friendly person. What struck me the most was she had a lot of time for others and listened to people without ever being quick to get angry or be judgemental. We became good friends because of this. We need more people like Paula in this world.”
