A 13-year-old boy has been taken to hospital after a hit and run incident in in Carlisle.
At 9.10pm on the 3rd September a 13-year-old boy, riding his bike on the pavement on Orton Road, was knocked off by a reversing car. The car then drove off without stopping. The boy was taken to Cumberland Infirmary with minor injuries.
Police also believe that the vehicle hit an unknown man. The collision occurred on Orton Road near to the junction with Shadygrove Road.

150 letters, written by Harry Canham of the Kings Own Border Regiment, have been gifted to the Museum of Military Life in Carlisle. They offer a new insight into conditions in the first world war trenches.
The letters document in detail the life of a soldier on the frontline, as Jenny Longden reports.
A collection of 150 letters are to go on display at a Military Museum in Carlisle.
The hoard was collected by the museums curator following a phone call from a relative of soldier Harry Canham, who served with the Kings Own Border Regiment.
The nearly complete collection documents his time fighting in the Far East.
The equivalent of one a week was sent during his time there. Only two are missing from the collection.
"He's telling his family when he is embarking from Southampton on his way he drops off at Alexandria for refuelling, re-provision of the shop and onwards through the Suez Canal to the Far East. So it is just mundane stuff but of vital importance in these years of commemoration of the First World War."
