A man has been charged with murder after a passenger was fatally shot in a car in west London.

Hashim Abdalla Ali, 22, was sat in a parked Mercedes when he was shot at 14:37 BST in Central Avenue, Hillingdon, on 11 October.

The driver tried to get him to hospital but crashed in Uxbridge Road on the way, the Metropolitan Police said.

Juskiran Sidhu, 27, has been charged with murder and is due before Uxbridge Magistrates' Court later.

He died at the scene despite paramedics trying to save him.

The BBC understands the fatal shooting was the 13th in London this year.
