A local resident whose friend witnessed the accident told
"An elderly man walked out between two stationary buses at bus stop by Smiths, he was knocked down and killed by an overtaking Tesco lorry."

Earlier tweets had conflicting information, some stating a bus has crushed the elderly pedestrian but others had tweeted that it was a lorry.

The High Street is still closed and fire engines, numerous police cars and London ambulance & paramedics continue to be at the scene. As yet no information available from the police.
