A motorcyclist was killed in a collision with a car in Wanstead yesterday evening.

Police said the male rider, who has not yet been formally identified, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash near the junction of New Wanstead and Spratt Hall Road at around 9.15pm.

The 66-year-old driver of the car, who stopped at the scene, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and bailed until October.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said two ambulances, a single responder and duty officer attended.

She added: “Our staff treated a man, believed to be in his late 20s, who was in cardiac arrest.

“Sadly, despite extensive efforts, he was pronounced dead at the scene.”

A post-mortem is due to take place tomorrow.

New Wanstead and Spratt Hall Road were closed while emergency services were at the scene yesterday evening and buses were diverted.

A bunch of flowers left at the scene of the accident had a note inside it reading “RIP Shaz”.
