A woman who died following a collision involving a pedestrian and a bus in Watford has been named.

Kerry Goodchild (pictured), aged 52, from Watford, sustained serious injuries following the incident on Market Street, at around 6.20pm on Monday, February, 10.

An air ambulance was dispatched, as well as the fire and rescue service, but she sadly passed away at the scene.

The bus driver, a man in his 60’s, remained at the scene and is assisting police with their enquiries. He nor any of the passengers were injured.

Police Sergeant Ian Manley, of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this very difficult time. It was a very distressing incident, and I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while we worked at the scene.

“We have launched an investigation and are still appealing for witnesses to come forward. If you were at the scene and have not yet made contact with us, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

The family are continuing to receive support from specially trained officers, and have asked that their privacy is respected at this time.

They have also started a fundraising page for Kerry’s funeral which has so far raised £2,741
