A SIX-YEAR-OLD boy was left with a fractured skull when the scooter he was riding was involved in a collision with a cyclist in Chester.

The boy was taken to hospital following the incident in Stamford Road, Blacon, at 4.55pm on Thursday, December 2.

The cyclist did not stop at the scene and police are now appealing for information following the fail to stop collision.

Police say the cyclist was on either a pedal or electric bike, while the six-year-old boy was on a scooter.

The boy has since been released from hospital.

Police Constable Nicholas Watts said: "This collision left a little boy with fractures to his skull and eye socket and he is now recovering at home, however these injuries could have been a lot worse.

"We know that the Stamford Road area would have been busy at this time of the evening and a number of enquiries, including CCTV, are under way.

"We would urge anyone with dashcam footage or anyone who may have witnessed the collision to get in touch with us.

"I would also like to take this time to appeal to cyclist themselves to come forward to assist us with our enquiries."
