A nine-year-old girl has sadly passed away following a road traffic collision in Northchurch earlier this month.

She was taken to a hospital in London but tragically died on Sunday evening.

Sergeant Stephen Andrews, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “This is obviously an incredibly difficult time for the family and I’m urging members of the public to respect their privacy and to not speculate about the circumstances surrounding the collision, which could cause them further distress.
