A photograph of a car involved in a hit-and-run near Norwich which left a boy with serious head injuries has been released in a bid to trace its driver.

Liam Woods, 14, is receiving treatment after a Peugeot 206 GTI struck him, his sister Amy, 12, and father Mark at a bus stop in Costessey on Saturday.

The car was recovered a short while later on the nearby Larkman estate.

Police said they attempted to trace the Peugeot's owner, but the vehicle was not registered.

The incident happened close to the Cherry Tree pub at about 1750 GMT.

Both Mr Woods, 47, and his daughter sustained slight injuries. Liam is in a stable condition at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Police had appealed directly to the driver to "do the right thing" and come forward, while on Tuesday, Mr Woods said: "if you can live with knocking children over, then shame on you".
