Girl, 12, injured in hit and run

A 12-YEAR-OLD-GIRL was taken to hospital after being involved in a hit and run incident during rush hour.

The girl was crossing Gillsman Hill when the green car struck her around 8.30am on Tuesday. The car, believed to be a Ford Focus, did not stop.

The girl was treated for foot and hip injuries. PC Barry Freeman said: “The car involved may have been a Ford Focus. The road was busy at the time and I am sure someone must have seen the collision. We are appealing for the driver to come forward and witnesses.”
