A TEENAGER seriously injured in an alleged hit and run in Tarvin is said to be making a full recovery.

The 14-year-old was knocked down by a car on Tarporley Road at its junction with Sandford Drive at around 3.15pm on Wednesday, January 2.

The lad, from Willington, sustained a serious leg injury and was rushed to hospital.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said on Thursday (January 10) that he was doing well and confirmed none of the injuries had turned out to be life-changing.

Another 14-year-old boy, who was with him at the time of the incident, sustained a minor leg injury but did not require hospital treatment.

A 24-year-old woman from Tarvin was arrested on suspicion of assault and failing to stop following a collision. She has subsequently been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
