Bridget Curzon, aged 85, from Otley, was pronounced dead at the scene following the collision in Bridge Street which happened shortly before 11am.

She had been involved in a collision with a green DAF Tipper truck at the pedestrian crossing, near to the junction with Cattle Market Street.

The driver of the truck, a 55-year-old man, stopped at the scene and has been spoken to by officers.

This is a really tragic incident and we are doing everything we can to continue to support Bridget’s husband, who was with her at the time.

While we have already spoken to a number of witnesses we are still keen to hear from anyone who saw any part of the circumstances of this incident, either the collision itself or the circumstances leading up to it.
