A child has died after a collision with a car in an upmarket housing estate on the first days of the school summer holidays.  The youngster, whose identity has not yet been made public, was rushed to hospital after being involved in the horror crash in Ingleby Barwick, Stockton-on Tees on Friday July 23 at around 12.55pm.  The child was fighting for their life in nearby James Cook Hospital as at least 10 police vehicles and five ambulances rushed to the scene in Wellbrook Close.  The Great North Air Ambulance was also in attendance on Friday afternoon.

A statement from Cleveland Police read: 'We can confirm that a child has sadly died following a report of a collision involving a vehicle and a child on Wellbrook Close in Ingleby Barwick at 12.55pm on Friday, July 23.  Ambulance service colleagues attended the scene and the child was taken to hospital.  Our thoughts remain with the family of the child at this extremely distressing time and they are being supported by officers.  'Enquiries are ongoing in relation to the collision.'
