The driver of the car, who stopped at the scene and was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries, is co-operating with police, Scotland Yard said.

Officers are continuing to appeal for witnesses and have urged anyone with dash cam footage, including footage from the minutes leading up to the collision, which happened at 8.08pm, to come forward.
