A father injured in a hit and run while giving his 10-year-old daughter a piggyback says the driver knew they had been involved in a collision.

Mark Catton, 40, was hit while carrying his daughter Boe across Wendover Road, Aylesbury, early on Sunday morning.

"There can be no doubt that he saw I had a child on my back," Mr Catton said. "To not stop and be concerned if he killed someone is upsetting."

Police believe the car which hit them was a dark Audi A3 or A4.

They were returning home from a family meal at a pub when they were hit shortly after midnight.

Mr Catton, a self-employed builder who lives in Aylesbury, was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital with a broken leg and has since been released.

Boe received treatment for a knee injury.

"My wife shouted to me to look out," Mr Catton said. "The car came at a fast speed.

"As I glanced at the car he made an adjustment in the steering and swerved towards me, at which point he hit me."

Boe said: "We went up in the air and fell to the ground. He just drove off and left us."

Thames Valley Police said it was looking at CCTV footage and number plate recognition cameras.
