 Inspector Matt Butler of the Dorset Police Traffic Unit said

“We are pleased that the two boys injured in yesterday’s collision are recovering well and expected to make a full recovery. The VW Polo has now been located and seized by officers of the Traffic Unit.

"The female driver is assisting us with our enquiries. We are grateful for the many calls of support and information that we received from the community in Kinson.

"I would ask anyone who saw the incident and has not yet spoken with an officer to call Dorset Police on the non-emergency number 101.”
