A £1,000 reward is being offered to help catch a hit-and-run driver who fled the scene of a crash in which a 16-year-old girl died.

Jade Clark died when her moped was involved in a collision on the A31 at Ringwood at 20:23 GMT on Sunday.

Police said "a number of vehicles" were involved but believe a Volvo XC90 struck her moped first.

The Crimestoppers charity is offering the money for information leading to the Volvo driver being charged.

Insp Matt Butler, of Dorset Police, said: "I need to trace the Volvo and urge anyone with information to contact me. I particularly appeal to the driver to get in touch.

"The front of the vehicle will be damaged. If anyone is aware of a Volvo XC90 which has sustained damage or has been repaired in the last few days, they should call the police urgently".

Chris Edwards, head teacher of Ringwood School which Jade attended until July last year, said she had a "lively, bubbly personality and was always full of life".

She said she will be remembered as someone who had a huge heart and was a "positive force for good".

The teenager was also a young firefighter in Hampshire.
