The police have launched two appeals for witnesses following two hit and run incidents on Tuesday and Wednesday.

At midday on Wednesday, a car hit a boy who was crossing the road by the junction between Rue des Legures and Rue Pierre Gansen in Niederkorn.

Whilst witnesses immediately attended to the boy, the driver who hit the child drove off.

The driver was in a yellow car with Belgian number plates.

The motorist who was at fault, driving a grey C class Mercedes, lost their left wing mirror in the collision, but drove off.

Police information suggests other motorists were present. These motorists should contact the Diekirch police station at +352 244 81 200.
