A man was hurt by a car in a hit-and-run last night, police said.

The crash happened at the junction of Lytham Road and Station Road in South Shore at around 5.35pm, a force spokeswoman said.

A dark coloured Volkswagen, possibly a Golf, is now being hunted by officers, with anybody with information urged to call 101, quoting reference 978 of Tuesday, December 12.

The injured man, 55, was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital for treatment after suffering a head injury, but is understood not to have been seriously hurt.

Police closed the busy junction following the collision, though it reopened at around 6.30pm, the spokeswoman added.
