Police are on the hunt for a Volkswagen driver and their passenger following a hit-and-run in Angus.

During the early hours of Monday morning, a car attempting to reverse along a street collided with a 38-year-old woman, knocking her to the ground, before driving off.

The victim suffered minor injuries.

Another car parked in the same street was later found to have some fresh damage consistent with having been struck by a moving vehicle.

Police believe the same driver was responsible.

The incident happened in Milton Park, Monifieth, at around 2.30am.

The Volkswagen is believed to be a Polo or a Golf and possibly grey in colour with an 02 registration.

Investigating officers said at least two people were in the car at the time of the hit-and-run.

A police spokesperson said: “While it is unlikely given the time of night and location that anyone has witnessed this incident take place, we would be interested to hear from anyone who saw a VW Polo or Golf being driven poorly around the Monifieth and Broughty Ferry area on Sunday night into Monday morning.”
