Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward after two 14-year-old boys were injured in a collision with a car in Tarvin.

The collision between the teenage pedestrians and a white BMW occurred on Tarporley Road at its junction with Sandford Drive at around 3.15pm on Wednesday 2 January.

One of the boys, who is from Willington, sustained a serious leg injury and is currently in hospital receiving treatment.

The other boy, who is from Duddon, sustained a minor leg injury and did not require hospital treatment.

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and detectives are urging anyone who was in the area and witnessed anything that may aid their investigation to get in touch.

They are also keen to hear from anyone who believes they may have dashcam or CCTV footage that may help them establish the exact circumstances of what took place.

Detective Sergeant Stuart Needham said: "Two 14-year-old boys sustained leg injuries in the incident, one of which is a serious injury that is currently being treated in hospital.

"We are determined to establish exactly what happened and I urge anyone who witnessed the incident or anything else that may help our investigation to contact the team here at Chester.
