A family of four - including two very young children - have been injured in a hit-and-run in south-west London.

The two children, aged 18-months and three, and their parents were rushed to hospital after they were struck by a red Fiat Punto, which failed to stop at the scene.

The incident happened as the family walked in Burlington Road, New Malden, at the junction with West Barnes Late, at 9.10am on Sunday morning.

The children were treated for minor injuries but their 31-year-old mother suffered a broken leg and their father, 27, was left with severe bruising.

The vehicle, with the registration YH55 HWV, was later found abandoned with damage to its front.

Officers are now urging witnesses to come forward as they continue their investigation.
