The incident happened on at the junction of Amhurst Park and Stamford Hill at 5pm.

It is understood that police were initially called to reports of a collision involving a bus and motorcyclist.

A London Ambulance spokesperson said: "We were called at 5:11pm today (31 October) to reports of an incident at Stamford Hill, N16.

"We sent a number of resources to the scene including an ambulance crew, a medic in a fast response car and an incident response officer. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance by car.
