AN 11-year-old boy on a scooter sustained "multiple injuries" in a collision with a car.

Police say the driver of the car is believed to have failed to stop and are appealing for them to come forward.

The incident, which involved a blue Suzuki Vitara, happened on Old Wells Road, in Glastonbury, at around 2.30pm last Friday (August 11).

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson said: "The boy sustained multiple injuries. Thankfully none were serious, but he was taken to hospital for treatment. He was released to recover at home later that day.

"The Suzuki is thought to have left the scene without stopping.

"We are appealing for the driver of the Suzuki to come forward."

Officers are also asking witnesses to the collision or anyone who has any relevant footage to get in touch.
