A boy, believed to be aged 3, was hit by a car outside Hilldene Primary School, Harold Hill, during the morning school run.

An air ambulance landed on the school field after the toddler was struck on Straight Road.

London Ambulance Service (LAS) sent several crews after the child was hit at around 8.45am.

The boy was taken to the Royal London Hopsital, in Whitechapel, by ambulance crews.

An LAS spokesman said: “We treated a boy reported to be three years old. He was taken as a priority to the Royal London Hospital accompanied by the doctor from the air ambulance.”

Havering Police are on the scene to close the roads while the incident is ongoing.

The school is unable to rule out that the child is one its pupils but initial reports suggest it is too young to be attending the primary school.

Previously in this story the Recorder referred to the toddler as a three-year-old girl on advice from London Ambulance Service. The service has apologised for its mistake.
