The woman, who was from the Upminster area, has been formally identified, and next of kin have been informed.

Essex Police have confirmed she was driving toward Upminster on the Romford Road, just north of Aveley, when her car was in collision with a tree at about 3.30pm. Despite the efforts of London and Essex ambulance crews, as well as the Hertfordshire Air Ambulance, she died at the scene.

East of England Ambulance spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “Sadly, after everyone’s efforts at the scene, the woman was pronounced dead shortly after. Our thoughts are with her family at this tragic time.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward. If you saw the crash, please call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101, or e-mail collisionappeal@essex.pnn.police.uk.

The road, which is immediately south of the Havering border with Essex, was closed into the night as officers carried out their initial investigation.

The woman was driving a Ford Fiesta.
