A man has been charged after a 'one-of-a-kind' university graduate was killed in a hit-and-run in Stockwell.

Yolanda Moore, 22, was crossing a road by Stockwell Tube station as she walked home from a night out with friends.

She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in the early hours of August 5.

Detectives today announced a man had been arrested and subsequently charged.

Tshan Henry, 27, of no fixed address, was charged yesterday with causing death by dangerous driving, driving a motor vehicle dangerously, failing to stop after a road accident and failing to report a road accident.

Shocked bystanders at the scene of the hit-and-run

A graduate of English at King's College London, Ms Moore was described as a snow sports enthusiast and went by the nickname "Landy".

She had recently returned to the UK after more than a year working in Australia and New Zealand.

CCTV images showed bystanders recoiling in horror as others rushed to give Ms Moore first aid.

Her father, businessman Wayne Moore, former operations director of luxury yacht company Sunseeker International, said: “Our only child was beautiful, talented, kind and truly amazing in every way.

"We are devastated beyond belief as are so many others. She brought joy to everyone she touched.”

Henry is in custody and is due to appear at Camberwell Magistrates’ later today.
