A man and a teenage girl were killed in a car collision in Croydon on Boxing Day.

Police were called to Purley Way, Croydon shortly before 3pm yesterday following reports of a collision between a Renault Mégane and a Kia Cee’d.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found the critically injured 53-year-old man and 15-year-old girl, both of whom had been travelling in the Renault.

They were pronounced dead at the scene a short while later.
