A 16-year-old boy is in a critical condition after being seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident in Broadheath.

Shortly after 9pm last evening, police were called to reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian on George Richards Way.

Emergency services attended and found a 16-year-old boy with a serious head injury.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
