DETECTIVES investigating an alleged hit-and-run in which an Islington Council employee was killed have made an arrest.

IT expert Andrew Lindup, 36, was knocked down on Thursday, December 15, in Enfield, where he lived. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 24-year-old man was arrested on Friday on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. Police recovered a car in Edmonton the previous day.

The man has been bailed to return on a date in late April.

Friends, family and colleagues paid tribute last month to Mr Lindup, who had worked on the council’s new website.

Paul Savage, the council’s head of digital customer service and development, said: “I speak for everyone when I say that Andy was universally liked and a much-loved friend to many.

“Friendly, creative and funny, Andy was one of those people who seemed to know and get on with everyone. We will all miss him tremendously and send our heartfelt sympathy and support to his family and friends.”

Any witnesses, or anyone with information concerning the accident, is asked to call the witness appeal line on 020 8597 4874 or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
