Two men were arrested and a woman was knocked down by a bus in a night of drama outside Romford station last week, it has emerged.
Around 8pm on Friday, emergency services were called to South Street to attend a collision between a pedestrian and a bus. Later, in the early hours of the morning, they returned following reports of an assault, which put a man in hospital with a broken jaw.
Two men aged 27 and 29 were arrested in connection with the incident and have since been released on police bail until an as-yet unconfirmed date in early February, police said today.
The woman hit by a bus is said to have been the best friend of Romford FC striker Tom Richardson’s mum.
The footballer told the Recorder the 35-year-old woman broke her leg in three places after being glanced by the double-decker as she crossed the street.
“It was quite a bad accident,” he said. “My mum was quite traumatised by it.”
A spokesman for Havering police said no arrests had been made and enquiries are continuing.
