A 69 year old man was hit by a bus yesterday afternoon in Bexleyheath.

The incident occurred near the Broadway in the centre of town and police are seeking witnesses from anyone in the area just before 2pm.

They state:

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high. Please support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
