Cleveland Police has confirmed Rhys Hewitt aged 14 has sadly died following a serious collision in Hartlepool.

Rhys sadly died this morning in hospital.

Rhys was a pupil at The English Martyrs School and Sixth Form College in the town.

Police were called to Brenda Road, near a bus depot, just after 7pm last night after Rhys, who was on foot, was involved in a collision with a black Vauxhall Corsa.

Acting Sergeant Andrew Lawson said: “This is a devastating time for the family, friends and the school and our thoughts are with them. We are providing specialist support to the family and have begun an investigation into the circumstances of the collision.”

Officers are appealing for anyone who may have seen Rhys or the Corsa just before the collision to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
