POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a pedestrian was killed in an accident with a bus.

The collision, which involved a single-decker Stagecoach vehicle, occurred in London Road, Portsmouth, at around 6.47pm yesterday.

A police spokesman said: "Sadly the pedestrian, a 64-year-old man from Portsmouth, was pronounced dead at the scene.

"His family have been informed and are being supported by officers at this time.

"Stagecoach and the driver, are assisting with enquiries, while our investigation continues to understand the exact circumstances of the collision.

"Officers investigating are keen to hear from any witnesses they have not already spoken with.

"They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has dash-cam footage or any local businesses who may have relevant CCTV footage in the moments leading up to the incident."

Anyone with information can call Hampshire police on 101, quoting incident reference number 44220159148.
