"My daughter, 10, was in a hit-and-run - the police have done nothing for four days"

After a 10-year-old girl was the victim of a hit-and-run her dad turned detective. He handed everything GMP needed "on a plate" but four days later he says the force has done nothing to follow up his leads.

Kacie-May Lomas was playing with friends outside her home over the Bank Holiday weekend when she was struck by a car. The incident happened just after 9pm on Wellington Road in Crumpsall.

She suffered a head injury which required stitches and she had two MRI scans to check for fractures and a bleed on the brain but they were clear. She also broke a finger and received cuts and bruises.

"My daughter went to hospital and at about 11.30pm at North Manchester General. Police took a statement from her and from me and my partner. The officer said it was too late that evening to do any inquires, but said they would start on Sunday.

"Sunday came and no one contacted us. I managed to get CCTV of the incident from neighbours and the owner of a business said he had CCTV which clearly showed the incident and the people involved. I gave police the mobile phone number of the owner of the business. There were plenty of witnesses to what happened too but police did not contact anyone."

Kieren said there was no contact from GMP on either Monday or Tuesday and he made a formal complaint via the 101 number.

"It is ridiculous and atrocious service from the police. They are always on about building relationships with the public but this kind of thing shows them in a bad light. They have all the information they need on a plate.

"Kacie-May was with her friends and stepped into the road. She saw the car speeding down the road doing about 40mph - the road has a 20mph limit - and tried to get out of the way. It hit her left leg and threw her into another car. She had a bad cut to the head, broken finger, bruises, and some of her skin was scraped off."

GMP confirmed they had recieved a report of the incident. Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 1584 of 26/05/24.
