I worked with Ellie some years ago and she was a lovely young girl, very pleasant and a pleasure to work with, nothing was ever to much trouble for her to do to help you. She attending The Grammer School with two of my children, who knew her well. She will be sadly missed. My thoughts go out to her family and friends.

Remember her very well from Badgers, and know what a lovely young lady she was. What a terrible tragedy - makes you want to cuddle your family close dosen't it.

Best wishes to Alistair and family at this really awful time. xx

As a regular London cyclist, and father of young daughters, I'd like to offer my condolences to her family and friends at this senseless waste of Ellie's life.

This is just so so sad.

London is becoming a killing ground for cyclists. When will TfL take note?

Yet another young life is take from us their lack of action.

This junction was already highlighted as one that needed improvements, yet they do nothing.
