The Met are issuing a new appeal for information to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Erith schoolgirl Gemma Rolfe's death.

Gemma was killed when she was just 12 years old on May 19, 2003, by a hit-and-run driver who was driving a stolen van.

The Erith School pupil was travelling to guides with her stepfather Dean Robey when their Suzuki Vitara was hit on the junction of Slade Green Road and Canada Road by the stolen Maestro van at around 7pm.

Gemma’s family and friends, led by her mother Janet Robey, will hold a remembrance service at the scene of her death on Sunday (May 19) to mark the anniversary.

There will be a minute’s silence held at 7.15pm and balloons will be released into the evening sky.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
