A man in his 60s has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, after a toddler died following a crash in Royston.

The three year old girl is believed to have been hit by a Mazda sports car on Kneesworth Street shortly after 3pm yesterday.

She was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge but later died.

It's thought a five year old girl was also involved in the collision, but was not hurt.

The man who was later arrested is being questioned and investigations are continuing.

Inspector Matt Thompson said: "This is a tragic incident.

We are very keen to hear from anyone who saw the road traffic collision and so may be able to explain how it happened.

This is quite a busy road, with the White Bear pub nearby, and people may have seen the collision take place while they were out and about.

They could have been outside the pub at one of the tables or inside looking out of the window and seen something.

If anyone witnessed anything and did not speak to officers at the scene, I would ask that you contact me via the non-emergency number 0845 33 00 222."
