Police are investigating after a man died following a collision with a bus in Heston.

Officers were called at 9:20pm last Saturday (21 January) by staff at a west London hospital after a man was admitted with serious injuries. Despite their efforts the man, aged 40, died a short time after arrival.

Police know the identity of the man and have informed his next of kin. They are being supported by specially trained officers. A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

It was established that he had been in collision with a bus in Cranford Lane at the junction with Armytage Road at around 7:19pm that evening.
