A school headteacher has paid tribute to a pupil killed in a van collision in Wembley yesterday evening.

The youngster attended Preston Manor Primary School in Carlton Avenue East, Wembley.

Matthew Lantos, the school’s headteacher, said: “Everyone at Preston Manor School is shocked and saddened by this tragic incident and our thoughts are with the family at this very sad time.

“The school will be doing everything possible to support other children and families at the school.”

The van driver stopped at the scene. No arrests have been made.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact investigating officers on 020 8842 1817.
