Detectives investigating a hit and run incident in Mansfield, in which a man was knocked to the ground, say he is lucky not to be injured more seriously.

Officers believe the driver may have been involved in an altercation with a group of people outside a nearby pub shortly before incident.
Phil Brewster reports:
Police in Mansfield are appealing for witnesses following a hit-and-run in the town.
Officers investigating the incident have released CCTV in the hope it may bring someone forward with information.
The victim was stood on Leeming Street at around 4.45am on Monday 6 April, 2015, after leaving the Rewind night club on 6 April, 2015.
He was struck by a dark-coloured Skoda Octavia which mounted the pavement. The car also collided with an electric box before heading off in the wrong direction up a bus lane and travelling down Clumber Street, again in the wrong direction.
It is believed the car was parked in Leeming Street prior to the incident and that the driver may have been involved in an altercation with people outside the Bowl in Hand pub.
Detective Constable Kelly Holloway: “Unbelievably the victim did not sustain major injuries and is currently recovering well. Had the car not struck the electric box this incident could easily have ended in tragedy.
