Man held after boy, 11, dies in Manchester hit-and-run
Police are questioning a man after an 11-year-old boy was killed in a hit-and-run collision.
Taylor Schofield died in hospital after the collision in Beswick, Manchester, at about 18:10 GMT on Saturday.
A 31-year-old man later attended a police station and was held on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He remains in custody.
"Devastated" neighbours have said they believe Taylor was on his bike around the time the crash happened.
A grey Volkswagen Golf, believed to have been involved in the collision, was found abandoned near the scene.
Paying tribute to Taylor, his family said: "Taylor was a cheeky, handsome lad who loved his mates, football and Man United.
"He was a very bright, intelligent, loving and caring kid - always smiling, making jokes.
"He's going to be missed by everyone. He was taken too soon from us."
Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash on Albert Street.
One neighbour said: "I didn't know the lad to talk to but he loved my dog and would always stroke him. You would see him every day at the shop on his bike. It's so tragic."

A black Manchester United away shirt was also tied to a lamppost.
PC Karl Horner said: "This was a tragic incident in which a young boy lost his life, and my thoughts are with his family at this unimaginably difficult time."
