    A Jewish couple from north London have died after a car collided with them as they walked along a road on holiday in Bournemouth.

    Alan and Rochelle Bernard, members of Northwood United Synagogue, were declared dead at the scene after a silver Mercedes crashed into them at 10.35pm on Banks Road in Sandbanks on Saturday.

    The 51 and 53-year-old, who had a holiday home in Bournemouth, had three children, aged between 17 and 27.

    Another injured woman was taken to Poole Hospital and has since been released.

    A 33-year-old Poole man has been arrested on suspicion of driving offences.

    Northwood's Rabbi Moshe Freedman said: “We feel totally shocked and devastated. The community has never experienced anything like this.

    “They were very valued members of our community. When such a tragedy occurs, it is a tragedy for the entire community. The ripples of this will continue for months and maybe years.

    “They had a very wide circle of friends, as do their children and this has directly affected many families.”
