A woman accidentally killed her daughter while trying to park her car in south-west London on the morning of Wednesday, 13 August.
Six-year-old Bolutito Shodipe was run over by her mother who was attempting to park her car outside the Hunslow West tube station at around 9.40am.
Police and London Ambulance Service paramedics tried to resuscitate Bolutito at the scene but she was later pronounced dead at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.
The family has released a statement about the incident.
‘Bolutito was our eldest daughter and no-one could have asked for a better daughter. She was a beautiful, well behaved, girl who loved ballet and who will be sorely missed by all of us. This is an extremely upsetting time for us and we ask that we be given the respect and space to grieve and to come to terms with this terrible accident.’
Meanwhile, DCI Iain Miller of British Transport Police said detectives are working to determine how the incident occurred.
