The 28-year-old woman hit and killed by a car while walking along the A10 in Edmonton has been named as Laura Maria Sone-Demetrious, who lived nearby.

Laura was killed along with her two dogs while she was out walking the pets at around 7.23pm on Tuesday night. A 17-year-old boy was later arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop. He has now been bailed pending further enquiries.

Her family has launched a crowdfunder to cover funeral expenses.

Laura’s sister Gina Sone-Demetrious has spoken to news website MyLondon and told them: “I’ll miss everything about Laura. Her smile, the way she laughs and even annoying her. I can’t believe that I’ll never see her again.
