Bedfordshire Police is appealing for information following a fatal road collision in Henlow yesterday (Saturday).

Shortly after 5.30pm, a pedestrian aged in his 50s was struck by a car and was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained family liaison officers.



The incident took place on Langford Road between Edworth Road and New Town. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and is co-operating with officers.

“Anyone with information should call 101 quoting Operation Yeoman, or get in touch via our online reporting centre.”
