The teenager was taken to hospital in a serious condition, where she is still recovering from her injuries.

Pc Mark Nicholson said: “A teenager suffered serious neck and head injuries and is still in shock from what happened.

“I would urge anyone with information to call us and I want to appeal directly to the driver to do the right thing and come forward.”

Police are attempting the trace the car, described as a dark-coloured BMW 5 series and are appealing for anyone with information to call 101.
