A man has been arrested over a suspected hit-and-run in Staffordshire.

The victim, believed to be 22-year-old Joseph Hunt from Rugeley, was found with serious head injuries on Western Springs Road in the town in the early hours of Saturday, police said.

An 18-year-old man has been arrested and police have seized a Skoda Fabia for detailed forensic examination.

A member of the public contacted officers and subsequent inquiries led them to an address in Rugeley.

A police spokesman said officers have not formally identified the victim but specialist officers are supporting Mr Hunt's family.
