A female pedestrian  has been left fighting for her life following a road collision on Clapton Common near the Stamford Hill junction, outside  Barclays bank this morning.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at 7.19 to reports of a car in collision with a pedestrian. Officers, the London Ambulance Service and the London Air Ambulance attended and found a woman with life-threatening injuries.”

Hackney Police and TFL traffic news have both warned of slow traffic in the area.

Clapton Common A10 west bound is currently closed while investigations continue and buses are being diverted. There are long delays from Upper Clapton Road and other nearby routes. Heavy traffic is anticipated on adjacent streets, as drives seek alternative routes.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
