Police are continuing their appeal for witnesses and footage following the Orpington crash which claimed the life of a bus driver.

Kenneth Matcham, 60, from Gravesend, died after a car and two single-decker buses collided on Sevenoaks Road shortly after 10pm on Thursday.

Paramedics also treated 15 casualties at the scene, three of which were 'seriously injured.'

The driver of the car, a 20-year-old man, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and drug driving.

He was taken to a hospital as a precaution, then to a south London police station. He was subsequently released under investigation.

At 11am today buses across the country came to a standstill to pay tribute to Mr Matcham.

A JustGiving fundraiser set up by Go Ahead London bus company colleague Sheldon Malcolm has raised more than £16,000 to support Kenneth's family.

A statement on the fundraising page reads: "We stand united in our grief and offer our condolences to Kenneth's family and friends."

Detectives from the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are investigating and are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dash cam, mobile phone or CCTV footage of the collision to urgently get in touch.

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room number on 020 8285 1574 or police on 101 quoting CAD 9509/31OCT.
