THE DAUGHTER of a pensioner severely injured in a hit and run incident has appealed for the drivers involved to hand themselves in.

Maureen Langley, 63, suffered a broken ankle and a badly injured leg when she was knocked over as she crossed Squires Gate Lane last Thursday evening.

The care assistant is still in Royal Preston Hospital after undergoing an operation to put six screws and two plates in her ankle and take skin grafts from her thigh to repair cuts on her leg.

Sharon Boylen, 40, is the eldest daughter of the 63-year-old grandmother and expects her to be in hospital for the next two weeks.

She said: “The people involved must have a mother or grandmother and if it was anyone in their family they would want something done.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
