West Gorton crash victim, 13, critically ill

A 13-year-old boy is critically ill in hospital after being hit by a car in east Manchester, police have said.

The boy suffered head injuries when he was hit by a silver Vauxhall Corsa on Hyde Road in West Gorton, at about 15:45 BST on Saturday.

As he was not carrying identification, it took time for police to contact his family who are now at his bedside at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Police said the boy had surgery overnight and is in a stable condition.
