U.K. traffic police said today they had no record of Sir Keir Starmer speaking to them after an accident with a cyclist – although the Labor leader's spokesman insisted he give them his details before leaving the scene.

58-year-old Sir Keir was involved in a collision with the cyclist shortly after noon on Sunday in Kentish Town in north-west London.

He exchanged insurance information with the biker – described by a spectator as "very painful" on the ground – before leaving him in the care of paramedics, who were called at 12:08 and then took him to the hospital with an injured arm.

The Metropolitan Police Service said the doctors from the London Ambulance Service had informed them of the accident and two of their cars arrived at 12.20pm.

By this point, Sir Keir had already left the scene near the Kentish Town Overground Station. His spokesman later said he left his details with a UK traffic officer and the cyclist.

But the BTP told MailOnline today that they had no record of conversations with the Labor leader and no details on their record keeping systems.

In a statement, The Met did not explain how they learned the politician's identity but said they left a message on a driver so he could report the incident.

You didn't name Sir Keir because he hasn't been charged with a crime.

He is believed to have been driving a Toyota Rav 4 SUV when the collision with the cyclist happened near one of the politician's local pubs, The Grafton.

58-year-old Sir Keir had left the scene in Kentish Town in northwest London when two police cars arrived at around 12:20 p.m. on Sunday

Local Nicolas Janes, 39, told The Sun, “I went and there was a bang. A loud bang. I didn't see it directly, but could hear the impact.

“I saw what happened after that. The cyclist was on the sidewalk, holding his arm. He looked like he was in great pain.

“There were people who helped the cyclist. He just stayed on the floor in pain. They looked worried for him. & # 39;

A Metropolitan Police spokesman told MailOnline that they had been alerted by medical professionals.

Keir's Crash: What We Know Happened

The London Ambulance Service received a call about a traffic accident on Grafton Road in north-west London at 12:08 p.m. on Sunday.

The Metropolitan Police Service is informed of the crash by medics and goes to the scene at 12:20 p.m.

At that point, Keir Starmer left after giving his details to the cyclist involved in the accident and a British traffic policeman, his spokesman says.

The Met will receive Sir Keir's details and contact him at home.

Sir Keir then goes to a police station to report the incident.

He added: "Police were alerted by LAS on Sunday, October 25th at around 12:20 pm of a report of a road collision between a cyclist and a car on Grafton Road, NW5.

The driver of the car had stopped at the scene and exchanged details with the cyclist, but had left before the officers arrived.

& # 39; The male cyclist injured his arm slightly and was hospitalized by LAS as a precaution.

The officers later tried to contact the driver of the car and left a message asking him to report the matter to the police.

The driver of the car then visited a police station in north London.

& # 39; He was not arrested or interviewed with caution. An investigation into the collision is being carried out by officers from the Road and Traffic Police Command. & # 39;

A spokesman for Sir Keir said he spoke with the BTP before leaving.

They added, “Keir was involved in a minor traffic accident on Sunday.

He spoke to a British traffic officer who was visiting the scene and exchanging details with the officer and the other person involved.

Keir stayed at the scene until the ambulance arrived. Later that afternoon, he reported the incident to a police station under the law. Since the incident, Keir has also been in contact with the other person involved. & # 39;
