Charlotte Leatherbarrow

That 12-year-old girl who was knocked down and killed by a number 68 double-decker bus in Herne Hill, south London, on Thursday has been named as Charlotte Leatherbarrow, a dancer in the hit show Billy Elliot The Musical. My sympathy goes out to her family and to the cast of the show. Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident (title link). The bus driver was treated by ambulance crews at the scene, presumably for shock. No arrest has been made. The sad deaths of actor Michael Gough (CLICK) and The Shadows base guitarist Jet Harris (CLICK) were also announced this week.
