Kylan Spires the three year old seriously injured in a hit and run incident in Northampton

Detective Inspector Mark Hopkinson, who is leading the investigation said:

This was an extremely serious incident and our thoughts are with the family at this very difficult time. We realise that emotions are running high in the local community.

“We have one individual in custody and we are progressing several lines of inquiry, We are working closely with the family, but it would be inappropriate to give further details on that at this stage.

“We would strongly urge people to refrain from making threats and accusations which could constitute offences in themselves, and much worse, if inaccurate, could undermine any investigation.

Northamptonshire Police needs to get on with the job of finding the right person who did this.
