Police are appealing for information after a woman was struck down by a moped while walking her dog.

A 52-year-old woman was in Central Park, Harold Hill, when two boys on a moped hit her, leaving her with injuries to her hands and legs.

The driver of the vehicle, described as looking about 10-years-old, and the passenger, who was described as a 13-14, fell off the moped and fled the scene after they had hit the woman on May 15 at about 5.30pm.

Two teenagers, aged 14 and 17, were later arrested on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking and failing to stop after a collision, but were released on bail pending further enquiry.

The young driver is described as a white male, of slim build, around 4ft tall, with short blond, spiky hair. The boy spoke with an Irish accent and was wearing blue shorts and trainers, and was not wearing a top.

The passenger is described as a white male around 5ft 7ins tall, of thin build, with light brown hair. He was topless and was wearing shorts, and spoke with an Irish accent.

Anyone with any information should contact police constable Rob Newton on 020 8721 2508, or email him at robert.newton5@met.police.uk.

People can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
