The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Trib­utes have been left to an 11-year-old boy who was killed in a hit-and-run col­li­sion.

The young­ster, named lo­cally as Tay­lor Schofield, was treated by paramedics at the scene of the in­ci­dent in Beswick, Manch­ester, but died of his in­juries in hos­pi­tal.

A grey Volk­swa­gen Golf, be­lieved to have been in­volved in the col­li­sion in Al­bert Street shortly af­ter 6.10pm on Satur­day, left the scene and was found aban­doned a short dis­tance away.

A 31-year-old man later at­tended a po­lice sta­tion and was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing death by dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

The sus­pect re­mains in cus­tody for ques­tion­ing, said Greater Manch­ester Po­lice.

Yes­ter­day, well-wish­ers tied flo­ral trib­utes to a lamp­post in Al­bert Street.

One trib­ute read: “No words will de­scribe how missed you will be lit­tle man x Rest in par­adise x.”

One neigh­bour said: “I didn’t know the lad to talk to but he loved my dog and would al­ways stroke him.”
