Police are searching for the driver of a red Volvo who knocked down a seven-year-old child and then drove off.

It happened on Highfield Road, Salford at about 6.20pm on Tuesday 11 March 2014.

The boy was playing football in the street when a Volvo V1, the registration of which is unknown, drove around a nearby corner and collided with him, knocking him to the ground.

The driver stopped further up the street and got out of his car to look, before driving off towards Liverpool Street.

The boy suffered bruises and grazes to his right knee, right hand and elbow and was taken to Salford Royal Hospital for treatment.

Police are now appealing to anyone who either witnessed the collision, who suspects they may know the identity of the driver or the whereabouts of the car itself, to come forward.

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 6176 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
