A young boy was taken to hospital after he was hit by a car on Richmond High Street.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 3:04pm on Friday, October 26 and found the boy, who is believed to be four years old, with injuries to his leg.

The incident took place on The Quadrant in Richmond Town Centre. A witness told the Richmond and Twickenham times that "apparently the little boy ran onto the road outside Mcdonalds, when the car clipped his leg. A cop told me that the injury is serious."

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital by LAS and police have said his injuries are not believed to be life threatening or life changing.

Enquires continue, while no arrests have been mad.
