A teenage boy has been killed in Bury after a hit and run crash on Saturday night.

The 16-year old, who has not been named, was out with friends when he was struck by a silver Peugeot while he was crossing Stand Lane in Radcliffe.

He later died in hospital while the car was found abandoned near Bury town centre.

"Understandably, the family are absolutely distraught and both want and deserve answers as to what exactly happened last night," said Detective Inspector Amber Waywell.

"What I can say is that from our initial inquiries, it would appear this young boy was simply crossing the road when he collided with the silver Peugeot which did not stop at the scene.

"We later recovered this car and none of the occupants were present, so our main focus is now on finding all those who were on board.

"A young boy has tragically lost his life and his family are devastated, so do the right thing and call us.

"I would also appeal to anyone who witnessed what happened, or perhaps saw this car being driven at high speed or even abandoned in the town centre to come forward."
