“At 22:12hrs on Saturday, 20 August, police were called to a road traffic collision between a Vauxhall Astra and a Bentley Continental on Colney Hatch Lane N11.
“One of the occupants of the Astra, a 12-year-old girl, sustained critical injuries.
“She was taken to hospital where she remains in a life-threatening condition. The girl’s family are aware and are being supported by specialist officers.
