A 76-year-old woman has died after a collision near Upminster. 

The Met Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident, which saw police called at 2.59pm on October 12 to reports of a collision on the Southend Arterial Road (A127).

The driver of the Mini - named as Jacqueline Saunders, from Chingford - was taken to an east London hospital where she later died.

Det Sgt Mark Palmer, of the Met’s roads and transport policing command, said: “Our thoughts remain with Jacqueline’s family and we will continue to support them in any way we can.

“We have already spoken to a number of people who were at the scene but I am asking anyone who has information and has not yet come forward to do so.
