A cyclist was punched in the face and left needing surgery after being attacked in a street in east London.

The cyclist crashed into a girl on a zebra crossing in Hackney, and was assaulted by a member of the public.

After the girl was hit, at around 11am on Saturday May 13 on Lauriston Road, E9, a man approached the cyclist and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene.

The suspect is not believed to have been known to the child.
