Pictures have been released of a hit-and-run-motorcyclist involved in a crash with a woman and an 18-month-old toddler in a pram.

The incident happened in Eltham Hill, south-east London, at 3pm on Thursday, May 11.

Both the woman, 29, and the child were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the Metropolitan Police confirmed.

The toddler remains in hospital with serious injuries.

A teenage boy was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving on May 18, but has been released on bail.

Detective Constable Tristan Hunter said: ‘I would encourage anyone who knows who the rider might be to speak with us.

‘They failed to stop at the scene following their reckless riding.

‘A young child has suffered life-changing injuries that will continue to require ongoing treatment, including rehab.

‘Please call police and tell us what you know.’

Anyone with information can call the witness line on 020 8285 1574.
