Police are renewing appeals for witnesses following a fatal collision.

Cops were called just before 9am on Thursday of last week to reports of a collision involving a moped and a pedestrian in Kennington Lane at the junction with Kennington Road, Kennington.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended. The 82-year-old pedestrian was taken to a South London hospital with a serious head injury.

Despite the efforts of medical staff, the man died in hospital on Sunday. His family has been informed.

The rider stopped at the scene and has spoken with police. No arrests have been made.

Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating.

Enquiries continue to establish the circumstances of the collision.

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit based at Catford would like to speak with any witnesses who are yet to speak with police or anyone with dashcam footage. They are asked to call 020 8285 1574.
