Paying tribute to the 14-year-old, Chief Inspector Stuart Walne said: "Jasmyn was an active, friendly girl who was very giving.

"This situation is even more upsetting as the driver didn't stop at the scene."

He added: "The driver may not have intended to cause this collision nor are they likely to have been aware of the extent of the injuries they caused last night.

"However I would urge them to think about the impact on Jasmyn's family, friends and community and please come forward."

He said that investigating officers are working on a number of leads and that people have been giving the police information.

A 12-year-old girl who was seriously injured during the incident is being treated in hospital.
