Police are appealing for witnesses after a child was injured in a hit and run.

The girl was taken to Tunbridge Wells hospital in Pembury with minor head and arm injuries after being struck down in London Road, Ditton at 3.15pm last Thursday.

Officers understand the car, a silver Vauxhall Corsa with a spoiler and body kit, travelled from New Road into London Road and failed to stop afterwards.

He was later released pending further investigation.

Anyone who saw the collision, the car prior to the collision, or who has dashcam footage that might help the investigation should contact the appeal line on 01622 604100 quoting reference 19-0745.
