A 16-year-old girl was hit by a black car as she was crossing Queen’s Promenade, close to the junction of Red Bank Road, at around 10.30pm on August 21.

The vehicle, which police said may have been a Mercedes, then fled the scene in the direction of Cleveleys.

The girl was rushed to hospital where it was confirmed she had suffered a “serious break to her ankle” which required surgery.

PC Mark Rees, of Fleetwood Police, said: “This was a nasty collision which left a teenager with serious injuries, and enquiries are ongoing to establish exactly what occurred and who was driving the car.

“An investigation has been underway since the incident but we are at a point where we need to ask the public for help.
