Boy injured by mobility scooter in Rhyl, Denbighshire

Police are trying to trace the rider of a mobility scooter after it was in a collision with a three-year-old boy, who suffered a broken leg.

The incident happened at the junction of Wellington Road and John Street in Rhyl, Denbighshire, on 29 September.

The child was with his mother and although the male rider stopped briefly, no details were exchanged.

The dark-coloured scooter was being driven on the pavement at the time, said North Wales Police.

Sgt Gwyndaf Jones, of North Wales Police, said: "We do not believe that the rider realises the degree of injury that was actually sustained by the child.

"We are trying to trace the man who is described as being in his 60s, of medium to large build, with short possibly ginger-coloured hair.

"We would urge anyone who recognises the description of the rider or the rider himself to contact us."

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC 2047 Williams in St Asaph on 101 if in Wales, 0845 6071001 (Welsh language line), 0845 6071002 (English line), or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111
