A 15-year-old boy was knocked over and killed by a car while crossing the road on Wednesday afternoon.

The teenager, who attended Queen’s Park Community School, in Aylestone Avenue, Kilburn, was crossing Brondesbury Park with a friend shortly after 4pm when he was struck by a car.

Ambulances and police cars rushed to the scene, and he was taken to St Mary’s hospital in Paddington.
