The man who was killed in a hit and run collision in Fulham Palace Road in the early hours of Sunday morning has been named as New Zealand born Karl Robert Jones, aged 34.

Police are appealing for information and witnesses to the collision, which took place at 2.24pm on June 1.

Police say they attended the scene along with London Ambulance Service and found a male pedestrian suffering serious head injuries. The man was treated at the scene by paramedics but died a short while later.

The small black car involved did not stop at the scene.

The police say no arrests have yet been made and enquiries are continuing.

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it was aware of the accident and was providing support to Mr Jones' family.

His family have posted a death notice in a local newspaper describing Mr Jones as a treasured son, brother and uncle and "Loyal friend to so many mates, an independent and proud spirit now free to roam."

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
