The Havering College student was thought to be walking “along the zebra crossing” when she was hit, according to an eye witness.

Staff from the Cash Concepts and Sue Ryder stores in Green Lane left messages of condolence for the young woman and her family.

Ray Mehta, who works at Nuchem Pharmacy with her father, said she was out buying her lunch when it happened and that “she always walked really slowly with her crutch, but she was always careful.”

The driver of the Hoo Hing lorry was arrested at the scene in conjunction with the incident.
