Three men arrested over a hit-and-run crash in Leeds in which a two-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister were badly hurt, have been released on bail.

Rayhaan Saleem and his sister Sabah were knocked down by a car in Brudenell Road, Hyde Park, on Saturday evening.

A 26-year-old man who was questioned on suspicion of assisting an offender was bailed on Tuesday evening.

Two other men, aged 39 and 36, were bailed shortly before midnight on Tuesday, officers said.

Officers said they had been able to enhance a CCTV picture to identify the vehicle suspected of being involved in the incident, at about 17:20 BST on Saturday.

Sabah remains in a critical but stable condition at Leeds General Infirmary, while her brother is said to be "improving".

On Monday the children's aunt, Saima Rafique, pleaded for the driver of the car to come forward.

Ms Rafique said the children had been knocked down as they returned from a shop with food for the family's Eid celebrations.
