A New Zealand man has been killed in a hit-and-run in London.

Karl Robert Jones, 33, was hit by a car on Fulham Palace Rd about 2.25am on June 1.

London's Evening Standard newspaper said Mr Jones was treated by paramedics at the scene but suffered serious head injuries and died shortly afterwards.

No arrests have been made and enquiries were ongoing, the newspaper said.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it was aware of the accident and was providing support to Mr Jones' family.

A death notice described Mr Jones as a treasured son, brother and uncle.

"Loyal friend to so many mates, an independent and proud spirit now free to roam."
