Female was attacked and robbed in Church Road

A police investigation is underway after a woman was attacked and robbed just feet away from the site of a busy market.

The female, who has not been named, was found lying in Church Road, Willesden, at around 6am yesterday (Wednesday).

She did not need hospital treatment.

A car park situated behind a row of shops in Church Road hosts a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

A trader who asked not to be named told the Times they heard about the discovery when they arrived at the site to set up their stalls.
