Police have launched a manhunt for a driver who killed a pedestrian in a hit-and-run crash.

The 34-year-old man died after being hit by a car in New North Road, Hainault on Saturday evening (November 11).

Met Police officers investigating the case believe he was struck by a white vehicle with a black roof at around 10.50pm.

The Metropolitan Police initially asked for information about the driver of a dark-coloured Audi A3, but no longer believe it was responsible.

Detective Sergeant Chris Osborne said: "Officers are currently studying CCTV from the area surrounding the collision and while I am confident that we will identify the vehicle, I encourage the driver to come forward to police as soon as possible."

London Ambulance Service attended, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

No arrests have been made and police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
