A man has admitted running over and killing a woman as he fled from police.

Quincy Anyiam hit 20-year-old Anisha Vidal-Garner from Epping on Brixton Hill, south London, after he sped from officers on Wednesday, February 19.

The 26-year-old, of Wolfs Wood, Oxted, Surrey, appeared by video link at the Old Bailey where he pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving.

He also admitted dangerous driving and failing to stop after an accident.

Sentencing was adjourned until Tuesday, May 5.

Police had tried to stop Anyiam's car in Brixton at about 21:45 GMT, Scotland Yard said.

However, he sped away and hit pedestrian Ms Vidal-Garner, who died at the scene.

The car was later found abandoned and Anyiam handed himself into police two days later.

Following the crash, the Directorate of Professional Standards and Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) were both informed.

The IOPC later took the decision to independently investigate the crash.
