Police are renewing appeals for witnesses and information following a fatal collision on the A40 near the Polish War memorial in which an elderly couple were killed.

Officers were called at approximately 23:50hrs on Thursday 15 April to reports of a collision between a white Mercedes 190E car and a lorry on the eastbound carriageway of the A40 near the Polish War Memorial in Northolt.

London Ambulance Service attended and the man and the woman from the Mercedes were pronounced dead at the scene.

They have been named as Krikor Tidanian, 80 and his wife Aprine, 76 from Neasden.

Post-mortems at Uxbridge Mortuary on Monday 19 April gave the causes of death as multiple injuries. An inquest opened and adjourned at Uxbridge Coroners Court the same day.

At this early stage it is believed Mr and Mrs Tidanian's Mercedes had broken down on the eastbound carriageway. While awaiting recovery a lorry that was travelling on the same carriageway was in collision with it.

Sergeant Cheryl Frost from the Collision Investigation Unit based at Alperton Traffic Garage is asking anyone who can assist to call the witness appeal line on 020 8998 5319.

+ A man, the driver of the lorry, was arrested at the scene on suspicion
of causing death by dangerous driving and later bailed to return to a west
London police station pending further enquiries - next due in August.
