Tributes paid to 11-year-old boy killed in hit-and-run tragedy on Manchester road
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.”
