Police are appealing for dashcam footage after a child was hurt in a hit-and-run on a zebra crossing.

A 13-year-old girl suffered scrapes and bruising after being hit by a grey car as she used the crossing in Hucknall Road, Bulwell Forest.

The car failed stop and continued in the direction of Bulwell.
