Officers investigating a hit-and-run crash in Norwich which left a boy with serious head injuries have appealed to the driver to give himself up.

A Peugeot 206 crashed into the 14-year-old, his sister, 12, and father at a bus stop in Costessey on Saturday.

The boy is in a stable condition in hospital while his father and sister sustained minor injuries.

Sgt Geoff Bowers said: "I would like to make a direct appeal to the driver to come forward and do the right thing."

He added: "This was a nasty collision which has left a 14-year-old boy in hospital with serious injuries.

"I would appeal to anyone who may have seen the vehicle prior to the incident or immediately after to contact police as they could hold vital information."
