Police have arrested a man over a fatal hit and run in Hemel Hempstead.
Sixteen year-old Fazan Ahmed was knocked down in the collision on Friday 22nd August. He died two days later in hospital from his injuries.
A 20-year-old man from Berkhamstead has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He's currently in police custody and is being questioned about the collision.
The family of Fazan Ahmed, who was killed in a hit and run incident in Hemel Hempstead on Friday evening, attended a press conference today where they urged for the driver to give himself in.
Fazan was playing football on the day after he had received his GCSE results. He was struck by a blue car, possibly a Ford Focus, which then drove on. Police believe that the car would have suffered damage in the collision and have asked garage staff and car mechanics to keep an eye out for it.
Sergeant Sam Cordingley from the Roads Policing Unit is leading the investigation into the death of 16-year-old Fazan Ahmed.
Anyone with any information is being asked to contact PC Dave Clarke at the Hertfordshire Police collision investigation unit on 101.

It's nearly two weeks since a ten metre wide and 6 metre deep sinkhole opened up in Hemel Hempsted.
Forty eight homes in the surrounding housing estate had to be evacuated and are still empty today.
Watch Martin Stew's report:
The sinkhole has been temporarily filled with concrete whilst engineering geologists assess whether the ground is now safe. They're now probing in sixty locations to see how firm the ground is from the surface to a depth of fifteen metres.
The developer who build the homes five years ago says he is hopeful people can move back into 44 of the 48 properties soon.
He says the timber design of the homes build on concrete foundations means they have stood up well to the damage.
The other four homes could require serious underpinning and early estimates show it could be at least three months before people can move back in.
Hertfordshire Fire Service have tweeted a picture showing the Hemel Hempstead sinkhole under the road.
