A man has died after being hit by lorry on a busy high street in south-east London.

Emergency services rushed to Peckham High Street shortly after 10am on Monday to reports of a crash.

London’s Air Ambulance was also scrambled but a male pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Photographs posted on social media showed scores of police cars at the scene as a large swathe of the road was cordoned off.

Peckham High Street has been closed in both directions and motorists have been warned to avoid the area.

A Met Police spokesman said: “Officers, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance are in attendance.

“The lorry driver stopped at the scene. Enquiries into the circumstances continue.

“No arrests have been made.”
