A woman who was killed in a suspected "road rage" incident in north London died from head injuries, tests found.

Christie McHugh, 33, was hit by a car as she was involved in an apparent row with another driver outside the Lord Kitchener pub in Barnet on Monday.

Mrs McHugh was carried along the bonnet of the car before she fell off and hit a zebra crossing light, police said.

A 50-year-old woman was arrested at a property in Barnet on Monday and later bailed.

The Metropolitan Police said a Vauxhall Insignia has been recovered.

Mrs McHugh is yet to be formally identified but her family has been told. A post-mortem examination found she died of head injuries.

Earlier, her friend Steve Meadham said she was the "most fantastic person".

Mr Meadham said: "She was just trying to get the kids in the car and get the car out of here."

George Leonidou, chief executive of Luxx Light Technology where she worked as a PA, said: "She was non-confrontational, but she would have been fiercely protective of her children."
