A man in his thirties has been seriously hurt and rushed to hospital by paramedics after being hit by a car.

Officers were called to Burford Road, off Stratford High Street, just after 2pm today in response to reports of a crash involving a pedestrian and a car.

A spokesman for the Met Police said: “The pedestrian, a man in his thirties, was taken to an east London hospital by London Ambulance Service with life-threatening injuries.

“Road closures remain in place while an investigation is carried out by police.”

Affected bus routes are being diverted away from the A118 High Street. Some delays may be expected.

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
