A motorist was arrested after an 11-year-old boy was killed during a hit-and-run crash.

The younger – presumably cycling – was treated by paramedics at the site of the incident in Beswick, Manchester, but died from his injuries in the hospital.

A gray VW Golf, presumably involved in the collision in Albert Street shortly after 6.10 pm on Saturday, left the scene and was found abandoned at a short distance.
