Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a pedestrian died following a collision with a bus.
Police were called by London Ambulance Service at 12:35hrs on Saturday, 5 December, to reports of a collision between a bus and a man at Chaville Way N3, near to Finchley Central station.
The 90-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene at 13:15hrs. Officers believe they know the identity of the deceased and next of kin have been informed. Formal identification and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course.

Enquiries continue to establish the circumstances. At this early stage, officers believe the man was caught by a gust of wind and blown off the pavement against the side of a moving bus.

Detectives from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command investigate.

No arrests. Enquiries continue.

A number of road closures are in place. Drivers are advised to avoid the area where possible.

Anyone who witnessed this incident is asked to contact officers at the incident room at Alperton on 0208 991 9555 or by dialing 101.
