A TEENAGER'S leg was broken in a hit and run last night.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision in Bruton Way.

An 18-year-old from Bristol was crossing the road just outside the train station at around 11pm when he was struck by what is described as a silver car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa, travelling towards Asda.

He was taken to Cheltenham General Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the car did not stop at the scene and police are urging the motorist or anyone else who witnessed the collision to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting incident 474 of February 4.

Alternatively information can also be given anonymously on 0800 555 111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org. In some cases Crimestoppers offer rewards of up to £1000 where information leads to a conviction.

    Yet another sloppy article - it lacks information, it's inaccurate and about as much use as an ashtray on a bike.

    I have been updated by police and told he was taken to GRH first and then transferred to Cheltenham

    Simple if GRH is busy then people are taken to Cheltenham and visa versa....
