A three-year-old girl has died after being hit by a bus in Luton.

Mayah Shazad was struck by the bus on Dunstable Road in the town's Bury Park area at about 15:45 BST on Friday, Bedfordshire Police said.

The road was closed for more than four hours while officers investigated the scene. Police are appealing for people to come forward with any information.

Buses will not currently run along the Dunstable Road route and will use Dallow Road and Hatters Way instead.

"The girl's family are being supported by family liaison officers who are keeping them in touch with developments," said Bedfordshire Police.

"Our condolences are with them at this time."
