A woman in her seventies has died after being hit by a car in Thatcham.

At around 5pm yesterday evening (Monday) the woman was walking her dog shortly before she was struck by a silver BMW on Henwick Lane.

Thames Valley Police is now appealing for witnesses following the fatal collision.

The woman died at the scene and her next of kin have been informed.

Investigating officer, Sergeant Ryan Seager, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit based at Three Mile Cross, said: "I am appealing for witnesses to this tragic incident in which a woman has died to please come forward.

"I would urge any motorists in the area at the time this happened to check any dash-cam footage in case it may have captured something that could assist us with the investigation.

"Anyone with information can contact police on 101, or make a report online, quoting reference URN 892 16/12/19."

The dog, a Corgi cross Jack Russell Terrier called Buzz, went missing after the incident but has since been found.
