Police are treating an incident in which a car was deliberately driven at a man in Milton Keynes as attempted murder.

A 20-year-old year man was hit by a green Ford Fiesta on Brearley Avenue at around 4am on Saturday morning.

He was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries to his head and chest.

Officers believe an argument had taken place in nearby Underwood Place just before the crash.

"We are appealing for witnesses to this incident in which the victim was left with serious injuries requiring him to be taken to hospital," Detective Inspector Jason Simpson, of Force CID at Milton Keynes, said.

"This happened in a public area so we are hoping that witnesses can come forward and help with our enquiries.

“I appreciate the concern this will cause in the local community, but we believe this to be an isolated incident.

“We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who recognises the description of the vehicle, a green Ford Fiesta, and may have information on the whereabouts of the car."
