A tourist injured in a collision with a bus in central London has died.

The 48-year-old woman’s children, an 18-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy, were also injured and remain in hospital.

The three were part of a Spanish family on holiday in London.

They were involved in a collision with a route 29 bus at the junction of Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue at around 2.45pm yesterday.

All three were taken to hospital. The woman died this afternoon. Her daughter remains in a serious but stable condition and her son remains in a stable condition.

The woman’s husband was with the three at the time on the incident but was uninjured.

The woman’s next-of-kin are aware of the death, but police say they are not yet in a position to release her name.

A post mortem will be scheduled in due course, and an inquest will open and adjourn in due course at Westminster Coroner’s Court.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit at Catford are investigating and are appealing for witnesses to call them on 020 8284 5901.

There have been no arrests. The driver of the bus remained at the scene and spoke with police officers.
