POLICE have released video footage after an eight-year-old girl was seriously injured in a hit and run in Coventry.

The girl, who remains in hospital in a critical condition with a head injury, was struck on Monkswood Crescent just after 6pm last Friday.

The car involved was a grey Toyota Yaris.

A man and woman can be seen in the footage police have recovered as part of its investigation. Officers believe they are involved and need to speak to them urgently.
