A woman has died after being hit by four vehicles while using a pedestrian crossing in south London.

The woman, in her late 20s to early 30s, was struck by an HGV as she crossed Norwood Road in Tulse Hill at 06:48 GMT.

She was then subsequently struck by a second lorry and two cars, a spokesperson for the Met Police said.

None of the drivers stopped, the force added. The woman was pronounced dead at 07:21.

Formal identification is yet to take place and inquiries to trace the victim's next of kin are ongoing.

Acting Det Sgt Alastair Middleton said: "I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision and the moments afterwards to contact us.

"I would also urge the drivers of all four vehicles to come forward and speak with my team."

A post-mortem examination will be held in due to course.
