A woman has been left in a critical condition after a hit-and-run.

The 38-year-old is believed to have been hit by a white Mercedes in Westpole Avenue, Cockfosters, which drove off from the scene, on Saturday night.

She had just left a concert in nearby Trent Park, Enfield, and was on her way to meet her father who was due to pick her up.

Police were called at 11.41pm and she was taken to an east London hospital, where she remains.

Detective Sergeant John Woods is leading the investigation.

He said: "We are doing everything we can to trace the vehicle involved, this young woman had just left a concert in Trent Park and was walking on route to meet her father who was picking her up, when the car collided with her. I would urge the driver concerned to contact police or hand himself in at the earliest opportunity.
