Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses after a teenage pedestrian died following a collision with a car in south London. 

Police were called at 22:15hrs on Thursday, 30 November to Creek Road at the junction with Deptford Church Street, SE8 to reports of a collision.

Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service and provided first aid. Sadly, 19-year-old Laura Keyes was pronounced dead at the scene.
