Police have arrested a man after a hit and run left a 23-year-old Lincoln woman fighting for her life in hospital.

Casey Dent was on Bilsby Close, in the Ermine East area, at around 8.30pm on November 8 when she was struck by a light-coloured van.

Paramedics rushed her to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham where she had emergency surgery to save her life.
