A seven-year-old girl has died after being hit by a car in Bradford.

The child was struck by a Land Rover Freelander on Beacon Road as the vehicle was travelling towards Wibsey on Thursday morning.

West Yorkshire Police said the girl suffered head injuries and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary, but died as a result of her injuries.

Officers said the driver of the vehicle was not hurt and they have appealed for witnesses to the accident.

On Thursday night the girl's father, Jack Davies, went to the scene of the accident and said: "She was a bright, beautiful, bubbly little girl.

"She was doing very well at school. She was always bouncy around and doing stuff.

"I'm never going to be able to live without my daughter."
