Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident which happened just before midnight last Friday night outside Golders Green bus and tube station.

A Met spokesman said police were called to reports of a female pedestrian in collision with a bus at 11:52pm.

He said: “Officers, London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade attended and found a woman aged in her twenties trapped beneath the bus.

The woman was recovered from underneath the bus and taken to a central London hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

The driver of the bus has been spoken to by officers and is assisting them with their enquiries. No arrests have been made.”

Investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Stuart Henson, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This is a serious collision that happened on a busy road, near a well used station. There would have been a lot of people passing by. It is very important we find out exactly how this incident occurred. I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision to contact us as soon as possible.”

He urged witnesses and anyone with information to call 0208-991-9555 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
