A teenage pedestrian involved in a collision with a car has been discharged from hospital.  

Emergency services, including London Fire Brigade, were called to Winchester Road in Highams Park on Friday at 7:30pm following reports of female trapped under a car.

The 17-year-old girl was hit by an Audi A2 and taken to Royal London Hospital after being stabilised at the scene.

She was kept in overnight and discharged on Saturday. Police have not revealed details of her injuries but described her condition as non life-threatening. 

Winchester Road has been described by residents living along the street as being used as a 'race track' by drivers, and a petition was launched in April to pressure Waltham Forest council to introduce speed controls. 

No arrests have been made and police re-opened the road three hours later. 

The council are currently carrying out speed monitoring tests along the road.
