A teenager who was knocked down by a car in Warwickshire has died.

George Cowley, 16, from Grange Road, Bearley, was hit as he crossed a road close to the village railway station on the evening of 10 February.

He suffered serious injuries and died in hospital on Tuesday morning, a police spokesman said.

Police said they would like to hear from anyone who saw the accident or who saw a black Vauxhall Corsa or a group of young people in the area.

The accident took place at about 2015 GMT.

Warwickshire Police would also like to hear from a driver of a vehicle thought to have been travelling towards Stratford shortly before the accident. They believe the motorist may have seen a group of young people crossing the road near the railway bridge.

George's family issued a statement saying he would always be in their thoughts.
