A man attended a south London police station this morning and was detained, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said. He is currently in custody.

Veronica Vanessa Chango-Alvarez, 31, died after the incident in Streatham High Road, which took place when an Audi A3 was involved in the collision at the bus stop at around 5.30am on Saturday.

A 51-year-old man, also injured in the same collision, remains in hospital.

The Audi was found abandoned at the scene.
