A crowdfunding page set up for two police officers who were seriously injured in a collision on the A406 in Neasden has raised nearly £11,000.

Both officers, in their 30s, remain inhospital following the collision at the junction with with Dog Lane, near Brent Park, at 3.40am on Sunday.

The collision happened as they returned on foot to their police vehicle which was parked on the A406.

The fundraisng page was set up by their colleague Daniel Asprey for the officers, who had been attending an unrelated incident at the time of the collision.

The page has raised more than £11,000.

Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick, said: “My thoughts and prayers are with my officers, and their families. I,and their whole police family in the Met, hope they make a full and speedy recovery.

“These officers had been helping their colleagues respond to another incident.”

“Police officers are trained to respond to horrific incidents such as that, but to do so knowing that it is your colleagues who are in need of help takes the utmost professionalism.

Mr Asprey, who set up the funraising page, wrote: “This is the season of good will and giving, so please dig deep and give as much or as little as you can afford. Every little donation, will I’m sure, be greatly received by our friends.
