Police are appealing for witnesses after a three-year-old boy received head injuries as a result of a car crash at a bus stop.

The child was waiting at the bus stop in Plaistow Grove, Newham, on April 25 when a green BMW smashed into it causing extensive damage to the bonnet. Paramedics took the boy to the hospital and he was later discharged.

The driver of the car, a 28-year-old man, was arrested and released on bail to a date later this month.

Det Con Lucie Fish said: ”The child at the bus stop suffered head injuries as a direct result of the collision.

“We would ask anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 at at crimestoppers-uk.org
