A four-year-old boy has died after being hit by a car outside a medical centre.

Police were called to reports of the crash outside the Reginald Centre in Chapeltown Road, Leeds, shortly after 16:50 BST on Saturday.

The youngster was pronounced dead after he was taken to Leeds General Infirmary.

His parents are being supported by specialist officers as inquiries take place, West Yorkshire Police said.

The force has appealed for witnesses.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the car involved in the collision, a Vauxhall Corsa, which was travelling northbound on Chapeltown Road, before it struck the boy.
