A car allegedly failed to stop after colliding with an 11-year-old boy in Stevenage – and police trying to establish what happened have today appealed for witnesses.

Police said the incident involved a white car and happened in Foxfield, near the junction with Featherston Road, just before 6.30pm on Wednesday, March 28.

PC Paul Armitage from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit said: “Luckily the victim suffered only minor injuries, but he was understandably very shaken up.

“Did you see a white car leave the scene? I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or events leading up to it, to please get in touch.

“We have yet to speak to the driver so I am appealing for them to come forward so that we can establish the circumstances of the incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the BCH Road Policing Unit on 101, quoting ISR 631 of March 28, or report information at herts.police.uk/Report.
