Detectives are appealing for witnesses to a fatal collision in Poplar.

Police were called at 2.56am on Friday, 15 December, to reports of a car in collision with a pedestrian on Aspen Way at the junction with Prestons Road, E14.

Emergency services attended. Despite the efforts of paramedics, the pedestrian – a 29-year-old man – died at the scene. The man’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
