are appealing for witnesses and information following the death of a woman in Barnet

At approx. 18.40hrs on Monday 4 March police were called to East Barnet Road, Barnet, after a woman suffered head injuries.

The ambulance service attended but she was confirmed dead at the scene.

She is believed to be a woman in her 30s. We await formal identification. Next of kin are aware.

A post-mortem is due to be held at Finchley Mortuary tomorrow (6 March).

At this early stage it appears she was a driver involved in a dispute with another woman driver.

She left her vehicle and an incident occurred during which she was injured. Early inquiries indicate that she was carried on the bonnet of the other car and fell from the bonnet and was in collision with a Belisha beacon.

The vehicle drove away.

Police subsequently attended an address in Barnet and arrested a woman in connection with the inquiry. She was taken to a north west London police station and was subsequently bailed pending further enquiries to a date in late April.

A Vauxhall Insignia has been recovered.

Officers from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death. An incident room has opened up at Barnes under DCI Howard Groves.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who has information that may assist the investigation, to contact the incident room on 020 8247 7821. Alternatively, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
