Byline: ROBERT SUTCLIFFE News Reporter robert.sutcliffe@examiner.co.uk

A DOG lover has told of her grief after her beloved pet was knocked over by a hit and run driver.

Dianne Worden says her two-year-old miniature Jack Russell/Chihuahua cross called Lilly was hit by a car on Woodhead Road in Holmfirth.

Dianne, 45, who lives close to the road, said: "I would like to stress to motorists the importance of sticking to the road speed limits on this road.

"The driver hit my little dog and drove off. There was no chance she wasn't seen as it was daylight.

"We have reported this to the highways agency of the council to see if there is anything they can do to reduce the speed limit.

"This was a hit and run and I cannot begin to explain my grief as I found her myself. I must have missed the driver by seconds.

"I have lived at this house for 15 years and have noticed recently that more cars are not sticking to the speed limits.

"Speed bumps or speed cameras could have saved my Lilly. They do go so fast on Woodhead Road."

Anyone involved in a road accident which ends in injury or worse to a dog must report it to the police.

Dianne has now reported it to the police.
