A toddler who was hit by a car outside Hilldene Primary School, in Harold Hill, received no serious injuries and is waiting to be discharged from hospital.

The boy was struck by a car in Straight Road during the morning school rush.

Parents were alarmed when an air ambulance landed in the school’s playing field after the collision, which was reported at around 8.45am.

Several ambulance crews attended and the child was taken to hospital.

A London Ambulance Service (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.”

But doctors found he had “no serious injuries and no breaks”, according to a police spokesman.

Havering Police were on the scene to close the roads. They made no arrests but are continuing their investigations.

The school is unable to rule out that the child is one its pupils but the age reported by LAS suggests she is too young to attend the primary school.

In previous stories 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.
