A four-year-old girl has been left with a "potentially life-changing head injury" after running into the road between stationary vehicles - including an ice-cream truck.

She was hit by a silver Mitsubishi L200 car on Finedon Road in Burton Latimer, near Kettering, around 2.45pm on Wednesday, July 1.

Police say it's thought the little girl had just visited an ice-cream van and ran into the road from between that and other stationary vehicles.

The girl was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridgeshire with a potentially serious life-changing head injury.
