Essex Police have confirmed a fourth person has died following a collision on the M25 outside Waltham Abbey.

A lorry and a minibus collided between Junctions 27 and 26 just after 6.15pm on Monday, 23 August. 

The three victims who died at the scene have been identified as 31-year-old Abigael Muamba from Edmonton Green, 60-year-old Dexter Augustus from Waltham Forest and 59-year-old Jennifer Smith from Stratford.

Lisa Gardiner, 44, from Walthamstow, has since died of her injuries in hospital.

All of the victims had been passengers on the minibus.

Two men were arrested on the evening of the incident, the minibus driver and a lorry driver.

“Our thoughts are with the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives in this awful incident.

“My officers are working tirelessly to try and piece up what led to the collision.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has dashcam footage or any information has been asked to come forward.
