A woman has been killed in a hit-and-run incident in Lancashire.

The woman, believed to be in her 70s, was starting to cross Revidge Road in Blackburn at about 1030 GMT when she was struck by a silver car.

The vehicle - thought to be a Mercedes saloon - drove up the road towards Lammock, Lancashire Police said.

A wing mirror will be missing and the windscreen is likely to be damaged, a spokesman said.
