Thoughts with Mum & Dad, hope the boys both make a full & speedy recovery. Sounds like a parents worse nightmare.

The person responsible needs to give themselves up now, or go to hell deservedly. Whatever the circumstances, running off is inexcusable. Let the whole of Bournemouth and Poole unite to bring this person to admit their crime. If it was a terrible accident with no blame on the driver, so be it. Anything else is inexcusable and it happens so often it is time we all work together to get rid of irresponsible driving, it happens too often without the dire consequences of this incident.

Those poor parents and children, it just seems to be more frequent these days. Have people no conscience its appalling that someone can mow down innocent children without a thought.

Thoughts to all invoved, i rode past this scene today, it was chaos. I didnt stop because there were at least 3 ambulances on scene. However, maybe the police parked up near bear wood roundabout could of packed up the speed camera and helped out? Or were they doing something more important than a hit and run with two small children? Unbelievable!

Horrific news. And they LEFT!?!? I'd hate to infer anything about the driver because I can only imagine the panic and the guilt she must have felt...but what kind of a person can take that panic and guilt and just leave like that?

I desperately hope both boys are okay. My warmest thoughts and deepest concern go out to their parents, who must be going through hell right now.

Thinking of the boys and their parents best wishes for a speedy recovery and hope the cowardly woman is caught soon, just a shame someone did not grab hold of her at the scene!

The driver stopped, got out and spoke to people at the scene but nobody took a registration number! Absolutely ridiculous.

Oh my gosh. I first of all hope the little boys are ok. My heart goes out to the parents. As for the driver, how anyone can drive off is beyond me. Let's hope she gains her senses and hands herself in quickly. There is a lot to go on. She will be found quickly if not.

What kind of human being can hit two young lads with their car and then drive off, how can they live with themselves.
My thoughts are with the two boys families and I hope and pray they make a speedy recovery.

My grandsons are the same age too. It must be heartbreaking for the boys' poor parents. I'm sure the person will hand themselves in as they may have panicked or not realised the seriousness of what had happened. At least I hope so.

I would never waive chidren across a road unless i was 100 pc sure that no other vehicle could come past. That driver shouldnt blame themselves but its an error of judgment. (feel free to mark as negative, but if it makes you think twice, i dont honestly care)

I can't imagine the panic & devastation the poor Mum must have felt seeing her boys injured like this, my heart goes out to her & her little boys. I can't understand the driver leaving the scene, I can only imagine that she must have panicked & been in a state of shock to react in this way, I hope she finds the strength to do the right thing & hand herself in.

Was this in any way connected to the gangs of teenage children last night around Leybourne Avenue and Timothy Close? Nigh on 50 of them? There was a police car and an ambulance there as well.

What on earth is this 'vital evidence' that the police are closing the road for hours to find? They already have numerous witnesses, they just need to trace the car. Are they scouring the area, hoping to find the number plate of the Polo?
