The girl was struck by a black Volkswagen Golf convertible on Holly Lane, Erdington, just before 5.30pm.

"We're keen to hear from anyone who has information about the collision - or has seen a convertible with noticeable damage over the last few days.

"You can contact investigators directly at or via Live Chat on our website, quoting log 3239 of 27 May."
