Yesterday evening, a man in his 20s was arrested for causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision. A 53-year-old woman was arrested for assisting an offender and has since been released on bail.”

Officers have appealed for witnesses to come foward.
