Police are appealing for information after a 12-year-old boy was left in a critical condition following a collision with a car in the Chorlton area of Manchester yesterday.

The boy was taken to hospital with serious head injuries. He remains there in a critical condition.
No arrests have been made and officers from GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing to any witnesses or drivers with dash cam footage to contact them as part of their enquiries.

"Our enquiries are being made at great pace and we are working to identify the driver of the car that failed to stop, however we do advise the person behind the wheel of that car to make contact with police so we can properly ascertain the circumstances of this serious incident."
