An investigation into the collision of a moped and a police car in Wimbledon last month has begun.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission say they have met with the family of the 16-year-old boy who suffered fatal injuries in the crash at the junction of Trinity and South Park Road on July 16.

An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned.

The moped, which had been reported as lost or stolen, was being monitored by a police helicopter which was itself supported by police cars at the time of the incident, as it was believed to have been involved in an earlier attempted robbery.

Two other teenagers on the moped, a 15-year-old and 16-year-old boy, suffered non-life threatening injuries, and have both been released from hospital.

All three were initially arrested at the scene at around 2.15am on Sunday, July 16 and two large knives were recovered.

Investigators say they now have CCTV footage and in-car police data, as well as MPS radio traffic. Officers involved have given their accounts to IPCC investigators, and any other relevant evidence.

The IPCC have also started a witness appeal in the area.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact the IPCC on 0800 029 4689 or,
