A man has been seriously injured in a hit and run in Southend.
A car reportedly mounted the pavement on Pier Hill last night and hit a pedestrian.
The driver failed to stop at the scene and left in the direction of the town centre.
It happened just before 10.30pm.
The pedestrian, a man aged in his 30s, is in hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Police are looking for witnesses or anybody who has seen a small blue hatchback - possibly with damage to the windscreen or bonnet.
