Police have launched a murder investigation after a woman was killed in an alleged hit-and-run.

Leicestershire Police were called to the village of Barrow upon Soar around 4.45pm yesterday after an accident was reported and a vehicle was said to have left the scene.

Upon arrival, they found a 28-year-old woman who had been seriously injured. Shortly thereafter, she was pronounced dead.

A resident, who asked not to be named, told ITV News: “Around 4pm there were a couple of police cars in the village and then around 4.35pm there were sirens from all directions.

“At one point there were about eight police cars in the area.

“They cordoned off a large area very quickly and scared away the locals.”

A black Land Rover was found abandoned near the scene of the accident and police later arrested a 42-year-old man on suspicion of murder.

The suspect remains in custody and investigations are ongoing.

The crash occurred on Field Edge Drive, a residential area on the Poppyfields estate in the village.

Gifts of flowers had been left near the scene of the crime earlier today, with a marked police car parked outside one of the addresses.

A nearby property had also been cordoned off with police cordon tape, with an officer standing guard.

Detective Inspector Mark Parish, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit’s Major Crime Team, said: “Our investigation into the circumstances of this incident is still at an early stage.

“Officials remain in the area and conduct investigations.

“Although a number of people have already been spoken to, I would urge anyone who thinks they can help but hasn’t reached out.

“I’m particularly interested in speaking to anyone who has a dash cam in their vehicle or a video doorbell at their address.

“Any footage you can provide could be crucial.”
