A schoolgirl was hit by a white van near a Romford school yesterday.
Ambulance services were called to Havering Road, where Bower Park Academy is located, following a collision between a 12-year-old girl and a vehicle.
An eyewitness said: “She came out in front of a bus and the van was overtaking.
“She didn’t stand a chance and nor did the van driver, he couldn’t have stopped.
“I hope they are both ok.”
