This was a serious incident in which a woman has been knocked down and sustained a head injury. The driver did not remain at the scene and we are appealing for information to trace him and the car he was driving, a light blue Audi SQ5 registration, DE68 EWS.

Enquiries have been on-going to trace this vehicle this morning and I want to appeal directly to the driver involved to come forwards and make contact with us.

We believe the incident was also witnessed by the group of people pictured and I would ask them to contact us as they may well have vitally important information about what took place.
