A young boy struck down by a Volkswagen has been treated in hospital for multiple injuries.

The seven-year-old was hit by a black Volkswagen Golf in Temple Hill Square just before 2.30pm on Friday, July 21.

Police believe the car had been travelling from St Vincent’s Road.

The driver is said to have initially stopped his car to check the youngster, but left the scene before giving any details.

Officers believe the driver is aged between 18 and 20-years-old, and was reportedly wearing a full grey tracksuit at the time of the crash.

He is described as black, skinny and stands at around 5ft 11ins tall.
