An elderly woman has died after a crash involving her mobility scooter and a car.
The 77-year-old was crossing High Road, Tottenham at the junction with Cedar Road on Tuesday at 6.18pm when her scooter was in a collision with a Silver Ford Focus.

The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics but died while on the way to hospital.
Her next of kin have been informed and formal identification has taken place.
A post mortem is due to take place on Monday and an inquest will be opened at Barnet Coroner's Court.
The driver stopped at the scene and has not been arrested.
Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit based at Northolt Traffic Garage are investigating the incident.
Detective Sergeant Chris Osborne, who is leading the investigation, has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
He said: "We are appealing for witnesses to this tragic incident, in particular the driver of a small silver hatchback car, believed to be a Ford Fiesta, which was in High Road at the time of the collision waiting to turn right into Cedar Road.
