A woman who died with her three dogs after they were hit by a car has been named by police.

Olivia Riley, 41, from Suffolk, was found dead after officers and paramedics were called to Cheyne Walk in Chelsea at about 06:20 BST on Saturday, the Metropolitan Police said.

Her three golden retrievers also died as a result of injuries suffered.

A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

"They also died as a result of their injuries."

The force has appealed for anyone with information or dashcam footage to contact officers.
