Traffic officers are appealing for witnesses to a fatal road collision in January.

Pedestrian Beryl Wenborn, a Rainham local in her 70s, was knocked down by a silver Mercedes in New Road, Rainham on January 31.

Officers were called at 8.30pm and took Beryl to hospital, where she died a short while later.

The car stopped at the scene and the driver, a 26-year-old man, was interviewed under caution at an east London police station on 4 February – he has not been arrested.

Det Con Steve Bellinger from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, part of the Road and Transport Policing Command, said:“We have had a good response from witnesses who were at the scene of this collision. However, from speaking to them it is apparent there may have been other people who either witnessed this collision, or the events after the collision. I would urge those people to contact police.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call the witness line on 020 8597 4874.
