A MAN has come forward following a CCTV appeal in relation to a suspected hit and run crash involving an e-scooter that left a woman seriously injured.

The woman in her 20s sustained a serious spine injury following the incident in Bournemouth town centre.

The woman was walking in Old Christchurch Road near Beale Place when she was reportedly involved in a crash with a man on an e-scooter.

It was reported the rider of the e-scooter failed to stop at the scene.

The incident happened at around 9.10pm on Monday, October 30.

Last week, police issued a CCTV image of a man they wanted to identify as part of their investigation.

Giving an update, a Dorset Police spokesperson said: “Following a CCTV appeal by officers, a man has now come forward and is assisting police with their enquiries.

“No arrests have been made.”
