A four-car crash in Havering-atte-Bower has prompted renewed efforts to introduce a speed limit in the village.

MP Andrew Rosindell has today - Thursday, July 22 - backed the local campaign to impose a 20mph limit, the day after a collision took place in North Road.

The Met has confirmed they were called to reports of the crash at 12.35pm, with officers attending alongside the London Ambulance Service.

While no serious injuries were reported, two people were treated for minor injuries and taken to hospital.

The driver of one of the vehicles involved allegedly failed to stop at the scene; enquiries are ongoing to locate this individual.
