West Midlands Police said it was "only by chance" that they were not dealing with a murder inquiry after a silver Vauxhall Vectra struck the youngster and a 26-year-old woman in Wolverhampton.

Both victims, who were hit as they walked along Tennyson Road at about 6.45pm on Wednesday December 2, were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

A 27-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the inquiry and police have appealed for witnesses.
