Sergeant Lee Froggatt, from Stechford Police station, is appealing for information after a teenager was injured following a hit-and-run in Small Heath.

The boy, aged 17, suffered a dislocated shoulder and a head wound after being struck by a Ford Fiesta on Wordsworth Road, near Small Heath Park, at around 7.25PM on Sunday 25th September.
