Hit and run appeal helped by West Ham MP
West Ham MP Lyn Brown joined the appeal to find a hit and run driver who left a young woman in the road with a shattered arm.
Nisha Nischal bravely returned to the scene of the accident last week at a pelican crossing on Stratford High Street, hoping to jog the memories of witnesses.
The 27-year-old from Channelsea Road was knocked to the ground by a car around 12.10am on Wednesday December 14 but the driver continued on without stopping, leaving shocked Nisha in the road.
Ms Brown is no stranger to the pains of an arm injury herself as she broke her elbow in several places almost a year ago when she fell down the steps of the House of Commons.
She said: “It was lovely to meet Nisha Nischal last Friday; we swapped stories about how to cope with broken arms and metal pins.

“It was easy to see that Nisha was very traumatised by the event and found it very difficult to be back at the scene.
“I would appeal to anybody who knows anything about the accident to come forward.”

Doctors at Newham University Hospital had to operate twice on Nisha’s right arm, inserting a metal rod to help it heal.
The family are also hoping to contact a white male cyclist who helped Nisha to her feet to reward him for his kindness.
Anyone with information about the incident should report it to police on 101, anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or to their local police station.
