Boy, 9, 'fights for life' after hit-and-run in Harrow

A nine-year-old boy is "fighting for his life" after being struck by a car which failed to stop, police have said.

Officers say the boy is in a critical condition following the hit-and-run incident in Church Lane, Harrow, north-west London, on Saturday night.

He is currently being treated for head injuries at a central London hospital.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the car was blue and was last seen heading from Church Lane towards Bushey.
