“Our thoughts are with Nahid’s family at this most distressing of times.”
Regent High School and Camden Council have arranged bereavement support for students and staff.
The student’s family, and Regent High School, ask for the support of the community at this time.
Meanwhile, enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the collision are ongoing with police appealing for witnesses to come forward.
The uninjured motorcyclist stopped at the scene but no arrests have been made.
Road closures initially put in place at the scene have now been removed.
Officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area and witnessed the collision, or the events leading up to it, to get in touch with police.
They are particularly keen to trace a white Vauxhall Mokka which stopped at the pedestrian crossing just in front of where the collision took place.
The car was not involved but those inside may have seen what happened.
Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are carrying out enquiries.
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Charlie Pulling via the witness appeal line on 020 8991 9555.
