A woman died after being struck by a car while she was out walking her dogs, police have said.

A teenager has been arrested as part of a Met Police investigation, following the incident in Edmonton.

Police were called at 7.23pm on Tuesday (January 9) to the A10 Cambridge Road, where a car had been in collision with a pedestrian.

Officers, the London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance attended. Despite the efforts of paramedics and police, a 28-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have informed her next of kin and that they are being supported by specially trained officers.

Detectives believe the woman was out walking two dogs, which were also killed.

A 17-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. He has been bailed to return on a date in mid-February pending further enquiries.

The Met says detectives are keen to speak with the driver of a red Audi who was in the vicinity of the collision at the time it happened.
