Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision in which a vehicle was driven at excessive speed through Madeley village on to Poolside at around 3.20pm on November 28.

The collision narrowly missed a woman walking with a child along the pavement.
Two occupants in the gold Vauxhall Omega ran from the scene.
Police are keen to speak to this pedestrian and also to anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police by calling 101, quoting incident 478 of November 28.
