A man has died following an incident with a Veolia refuse collection vehicle in Croydon, Surrey.
A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said staff attended a road traffic collision involving a pedestrian in Cherry Tree Green.
“We sent an incident response officer, two single responders in cars and an ambulance crew to the scene,” they said.
