Detectives from the Met Police have released a CCTV image of a car they believe is linked to a hit and run that saw a woman run over in Romford.

Police were called at approximately 01.40am on Saturday, 24 June to reports of a large fight outside a licensed premises on London Road in Romford.

A short time later, officers were informed that a female pedestrian had been struck by a car that had failed to stop.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended.

The woman, aged in her mid-20s, was taken to hospital with an arm injury; her injuries were not life-threatening.

Enquiries continue to trace the driver of the car, which is described as a silver Hyundai or Honda.

Anyone who witnessed either the fight or the subsequent collision is asked to contact officers at the East Area Command Unit based in Ilford via 101.

There have been no arrests.
