Appeal by father of boy injured in Norfolk hit-and-run

The father of a 14-year-old boy injured in a hit-and-run crash near Norwich has called on the driver to "face the consequences of his actions".

Liam Woods is in a stable condition in hospital after receiving serious head injuries when a Peugeot 206 veered off the road in Costessey on Saturday.

His father Mark and sister Amy, 12, received minor injuries in the crash.

Mark Woods and his wife Tracey called on the Peugeot driver to give himself up to police.

"If you can live with knocking children over then shame on you," said Mr Woods.

Car recovered

Mrs Woods said: "We need to get the person who did it so it does not happen again."

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

The incident happened at about 1750 GMT on Norwich Road, close to the Cherry Tree pub.

The black Peugeot was recovered a short while after the incident on Darrell Road on the nearby Larkman estate and has the registration X707 HPP, police said.

Inquiries to trace the driver of the Peugeot, which was not registered, continue, a Norfolk Police spokesman added.
