Mace employee Brian Dorling had been working for Olympics delivery partner CLM

A senior Olympics QS has died after a road traffic accident on his cycle into work.

Brian Dorling, 58, was struck at a busy junction a mile and a half from the Olympic Park site in Stratford last Monday.

Police were called to the Bow Road junction with the A12 at 8:37am, after reports of a road traffic collision between a tipper lorry and a cyclist.

The London Ambulance Service attended but Dorling - who was employed by Mace and seconded to work for Olympics delivery partner CLM - was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ian Galloway, programme director for the CLM, said: “Brian Dorling was a hugely valued member of the team and we are deeply saddened by his loss. 

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and those who worked with him at this difficult time.”

Next of kin have been informed. A post mortem was held at Poplar Mortuary on Tuesday 25 October and gave cause of death as multiple injuries.

The male lorry driver stopped at the scene. He was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and subsequently bailed to return to an east London police in November pending further enquiries.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit based at Chadwell Heath are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8597 4874.
