Officers are continuing to appeal for information following the incident earlier this month in Tower Bridge Road, close to the junction with Tooley Street.

A spokesman for the Met said police, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance were called at around 2.45pm on Tuesday, December 10 following reports of a motorcycle in collision with a pedestrian.

“The pedestrian, a man aged in his early 30s, was taken to an east London hospital with head injuries,” he added.

He was pronounced dead at 3pm the following day. His next of kin have been informed and formal identification has taken place.

A post-mortem examination at Greenwich Mortuary last week gave the cause of death as a head injury.

Police said the motorcyclist stopped at the scene, but enquiries continue and no arrests have been made.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact officers at Catford Traffic Garage via the Witness Appeal Line on 020 8285 1574.
