Police are appealing for information after a school crossing patrol officer was struck down while helping children cross a Hatfield road.

The incident occurred in St Albans Road East, at the junction with School Lane, shortly before 3pm yesterday (Tuesday, January 30).

A police spokeswoman said: “For reasons unknown at this stage, a BMW 420D and Ford Fiesta were involved in a collision and a man aged in his 60s, who was working as a school crossing patrol officer, was subsequently struck.

“He was airlifted to hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition at this time.”

PC Dale Morris from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit said: “Our thoughts are with the man and his family at this time.

“We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision, or events leading up to it, to please contact police.

“We would particularly like to hear from anyone who may have dash cam footage of what happened.”
