A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 12-year-old boy was killed in a ‘deliberate’ hit-and-run crash outside an Essex school.

Essex Police said in a statement the 51-year-old Loughton man has also been arrested on six counts of attempted murder and one of causing death by dangerous driving.

About arrested
An arrest is the act of apprehending a person and taking them into custody, usually because they have been suspected of committing a crime. After the person is taken into custody, they can be questioned further and/or charged. An arrest is a procedure in a criminal justice system.
Police and various other officers have powers of arrest. In some places, a citizen’s arrest is permitted; for example in England and Wales, any person can arrest “anyone whom he has reasonable grounds for suspecting to be committing, have committed or be guilty of committing an indictable offence,” although certain conditions must be met before taking such action. Similar powers exist in France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland if a person is caught in an act of crime and not willing or able to produce valid ID.
As a safeguard against the abuse of power, many countries require that an arrest must be made for a thoroughly justified reason, such as the requirement of probable cause in the United States. Furthermore, the time that a person can be detained in custody is relatively short (in most cases 24 hours in the United Kingdom and France and 24 or 48 hours in the United States) before the detained person must be either charged or released.

Officers had begun a manhunt as they tried to trace a silver Ford Ka, with the registration LS08 OKW, which is believed to have been damaged in the crash in Willingale Road.

Head teacher Helen Gascoyne said the school had been ‘devastated’ by the death of one of its students and that pupils would be offered counselling on Tuesday.

Chief Superintendent Tracey Harman told reporters on Monday night: ‘We believe that the collision was deliberate and as such we have launched a murder investigation.

‘We are investigating whether or not this incident may have been connected with another incident nearby.’

Earlier, Ms Harman said searches had been carried out to try to locate Glover, as she appealed directly to him to come forward.

‘I would urge anyone with information, dashcam footage, or who may have seen anything on social media that they think could be crucial to call us on 101 and quote incident number 726 of 2 December.’

Debden Park is a mixed academy school for pupils aged 11 to 18, which specialises in the performing arts and received a rating of ‘outstanding’ in its most recent Ofsted inspection, according to its prospectus.

A statement from Ms Gascoyne said: ‘As a school and a community we are devastated to say that as a result of the incident in Willingale Road this afternoon, it is with great sadness that we must report that a 12-year-old student from our school has sadly died.

‘Our thoughts are with the family and all those affected. As a school we continue to work with the police supporting the ongoing investigation.

‘The school will be open tomorrow with a number of counsellors on hand to support our community.’

A police cordon remained in place along Willingale Road on Monday night manned by uniformed officers.

The cordon began metres from the entrance to the school, near the junction of Jessel Drive, and an officer was going door to door in the streets nearby.

Armed police could be seen outside a home on the corner of Newmans Lane and Hatfields in Loughton, where neighbours said Glover lived alone.

No lights were on in the property but two armed officers were stationed outside while a marked squad car was parked in the road.
