A teenager has been arrested in connection with the collision in Brighton that left a young boy seriously injured in hospital.

Nine-year-old Logan Dore was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital following the collision with a moped, which failed to stop at the scene.

He has since been discharged and is recovering at home.

He was riding a scooter when it happened in Whitehawk Road about 12.15pm on Sunday (September 16).

On Wednesday evening (September 19), a 16-year-old boy from Brighton handed himself in to police and was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle. He remained in custody at 9pm.

Previous reports that two people had handed themselves in were incorrect.
