A woman who died after being hit by a police car in Bromley has been named.

The collision occured in Farnborough Common just before 4pm on August 1. The pedestrian, who has now been named as Louise Bailey, 57, from Lewisham was airlifted to hospital but died the next day.

Investigators from the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) will be carrying out a scene visit in Bromley on tomorrow.

The team will be in the Farnborough Common and Crofton Road area around 3.50pm handing out leaflets and speaking with passers-by in case anyone witnessed the events leading up to the fatal crash.

The MPS made a mandatory referral to the IOPC, as is standard in cases where a death has occurred following police contact.

IOPC Regional Director Sal Naseem said: “This is a tragic incident and my thoughts are with Louise’s family and all those affected by the events last Thursday. We have met with Louise’s family to explain our role and offer our support.

“We have obtained in car footage from the police car involved in the collision and data from the police car indicates its siren and lights were activated. We are continuing to gather evidence and are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision and may have witnessed something.”

The IOPC are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to contact them and assist with the independent investigation. Witnesses can call them on 0800 096 9076 or email witness@policeconduct.gov.uk
