Answer for Tourist pedestrian deaths

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Casualty and collision data, as recorded by the police under STATS19, reports the UK or non-UK postcode of each casualty in London. The table below shows the number of fatal pedestrian casualties in 2011 by postcode of residence.

Of the 77 fatal pedestrian casualties in 2011, 48 were assigned a UK postcode, one was assigned a non-UK postcode and in 28 cases the postcode was unknown. We are unable to identify how many fatal pedestrian casualties were 'visitors' to London.
