Investigation into death of soldier who was hit by police car

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating the death of a trainee soldier from Nottinghamshire who was hit by a marked police car.

Joshua Brown, 21, was hit by the vehicle on a dual carriageway in Surrey in the early hours of Saturday and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers were answering an emergency call at the time and the IPCC says it's investigating whether the police response was appropriate for the emergency call, road and weather conditions at the time.
