A man in his 80s has died after being involved in a hit-and-run in Coventry.

Neighbours found the man lying injured in Burnaby Road at 22:55 GMT on Saturday after he was hit by a blue BMW car.

Emergency services were called but he died at the scene.

West Midlands Police is appealing for information to track down the driver of the car, which is believed to have sustained damage to the passenger wing mirror and the windscreen.

"We need to find out the identity of the driver, and are appealing for them to come forward, so they can give their account of what happened," he added.
