Man killed by hit-and-run driver in London

A man has been killed in a hit-and-run incident in London.

The 44-year-old was struck by the car in Enfield, north London, just before 2330 BST on Saturday.

Emergency services were called to Carterhatch Lane but the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the silver car did not stop and Scotland Yard said the vehicle "fled the scene at speed", heading towards the A10.

A police spokesman said: "At this early stage, officers believe the car involved was a silver-coloured BMW and would have sustained frontal damage, lost its near-side wing mirror and possibly sustained some damage to its roof."

The victim's family have been told but his name is yet to be released.
