A 90-year-old man has died after it was believed he was blown into the path of a bus in north London.

Scotland Yard said it was thought he was caught by a gust of wind and blown off the pavement against the side of the bus near Finchley Central station.

Emergency services were called at about 12:35 GMT but the man died at the scene a short time later.

The man's next-of-kin have been told. A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.
