A TEENAGER who died in hospital from injuries sustained in a police chase in Biggin Hill has been named as Lennie Gray.

The boy was being pursued by police as he sped along Leaves Green Road on a motorbike before the officers lost sight of him at around 1.50am this morning (October 27).

When they next saw the youth he was lying on the ground and his green Ninja Kawasaki was further down the road.

They gave him first aid until an ambulance arrived and he was taken to Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital at 3am.

The chase started after officers in a patrol car noticed the teenager speeding along the road along with a rider on a black Gilera Runner 200 scooter.

They turned on their emergency lights and sirens and the scooter driver stopped but the motorcyclist did not.

The youth has not yet been formally identified but his next of kin have been informed.

An inquest will be opened and adjourned in due course.

The Met’s department for professional standards is investigating and the Independent Police Complaints Commission have been informed.
