A PENSIONER who died after a collision with a car in Golders Green has been remembered by staff at his butcher's shop who helped him in his last moments.

Anthony Levy, 78, from Hendon, was brought into Menachem butcher's in Russell Parade, Golders Green Road, after apparently falling and hitting his head on the back of a car at about 1pm last Thursday.

Mr Levy had been a customer at the shop for 18 years.

Manager Joseph Haziza, 27, said: "The next day we got the call to say that he'd died. We were devastated. He was one of the nicest men. He was a bit of a joker and always very friendly."

A colleague added: "Two of our customers saw that he had fallen down. He'd just come out of the shop. The woman who owned the car brought him inside and got him into a chair."

The accident involving a silver VW people carrier happened at the junction with Alba Gardens. A postmortem found the cause of death was due to a head injury.

No arrests were made but witnesses are asked to call police on 020-8998 5319.
