A pedestrian was "sent flying" after being hit by a van in Morden this morning.

Police were called just after 9am on Tuesday to reports that a van had crashed into a pedestrian in Arras Avenue.

Officers attended alongside the London Ambulance Service and found a man suffering injuries, although these are not believed to be life changing or life threatening.

Witnesses said the man was walking along the pelican crossing near St Helier Avenue when the van reversed into him.

Police confirmed that the van did not stop at the scene and that enquiries are ongoing.
