A 16-year-old boy who was injured in a hit-and-run in Hemel Hempstead on Friday evening has died as a result of his injuries.

Fazan Ahmed was struck by a blue car that failed to stop at the scene at 20:25 BST on Jupiter Drive.

He was taken to St Mary's Hospital in London where he died on Sunday evening, said Hertfordshire Police.

Anyone with any information or who witnessed the crash is asked to call the force.

Sgt Sam Cordingley said: "Fazan's family is understandably devastated by what has happened. We are continuing to actively seek the driver of the blue car and we would ask that they make contact with police as a matter of urgency.

"The vehicle we are seeking is likely to have a broken windscreen, as well as other damage so I'd like to ask for the public's help in locating the vehicle. I would urge anyone who sees a vehicle with similar damage apparently parked up or abandoned to call us."
