A man has suffered serious injuries after being involved in a hit and run in Southend last night.

He was hit by a blue hatchback car while walking on Pier Hill at around 10:30 last night.

Essex Police say the car mounted the pavement, hit the man and drove off in the direction of the town centre. Anyone with information is asked to contact them.

It comes a day after a pedestrian in her 90's was killed in nearby Leigh-on-Sea, after she was hit by a motorcyclist.
