The boy was riding his bike along Chesterfield Road, Barnet, at 8.15pm on Tuesday evening when he was struck by a bus in the 184 route.

He was left fighting for his life but police now say he is in a stable condition.

The incident prompted neighbours to voice concerns over the safety of buses on the narrow street.
