Attempted murder arrests after man hit by car in Ascot

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a 24-year-old man was hit by a car and seriously injured in Berkshire.

He was walking near to the Esso garage on Ascot High Street when he was hit by a VW Golf at about 03:20 BST.

Police believe the victim may have been involved in a fight with a group of men earlier in the Club One pub.

The man was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

The High Street was closed to traffic and an area of it was cordoned off while police carried out investigations.

Anyone who saw the crash, or the man in the club earlier, has been urged to contact police.
