A motorist has been arrested over the death of a University of Kent worker who was killed after being hit by a car as she delivered Christmas cards.

64 year old Elizabeth Tanner had parked her car and got out to make her deliveries when she was struck by a passing Vauxhall Corsa.

The collision happened in The Terrace in Canterbury, Kent, at 4.30pm on Friday, a spokesman for Kent Police said.

A woman aged 20 from Canterbury was arrested later that day on suspicion of causing death by dangerous or reckless driving.

She has been released on bail pending further inquiries over the death of Mrs Tanner, who worked as a master's assistant at the University of Kent.

Anyone with information about the crash should call the Kent Police serious collision investigation unit on 01622 798538.

Dr Anthony Ward, master of Keynes College at the University of Kent, paid tribute to Mrs Tanner.

He said: ``Liz was a lovely person who will be missed very much. Our thoughts are with her family to whom we extend heartfelt condolences.''
