Woman bailed over Canterbury card delivery death

A 20-year-old driver arrested after the death of a woman who was hit by a car as she delivered Christmas cards has been released on bail.

Kent Police said Elizabeth Tanner, 64, had parked her car in Canterbury and got out to make her deliveries when she was knocked down by a Vauxhall Corsa.

The accident happened in The Terrace on Friday afternoon.

A woman, from Canterbury, was arrested later on suspicion of causing death by dangerous or reckless driving.

She has been released on bail pending further inquiries into the death of Mrs Tanner, who worked as a master's assistant at the University of Kent.

Dr Anthony Ward, master of Keynes College, said: "Liz was a lovely person who will be missed very much.

"Our thoughts are with her family, to whom we extend heartfelt condolences."
