Police have asked for help as they investigate an alleged hit and run incident involving a pedestrian in his 80s.

A collision in The Tene, Baldock, at around 10.30am on Saturday morning saw the victim, who was taken to hospital for treatment, suffer serious injuries to his feet.

A black vehicle which was involved in the incident near the junction with Arwood Mews reportedly did not stop at the scene.

PC Craig Butler from the Beds, Cambs and Herts police traffic team said: “I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision, or may have seen the vehicle in the area, to get in contact with me.

“I am also keen to trace a member of the public who came to the man’s aid following the incident. If this was you, please get in touch.”
