A teenager is being questioned by police after a seven-year-old boy died after being hit by a car at a caravan site.

The 16-year-old boy was allegedly driving the car at Shirenewton caravan site, east of Cardiff, south Wales, when the incident happened at 3pm yesterday.

He was arrested and is being questioned on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, police said.

"A seven-year-old boy from the caravan site was apparently in collision with a red BMW 3 series estate," a South Wales Police spokesman said.

"The boy was taken to the University Hospital of Wales where he later died from his injuries. Specially trained police officers are supporting the family.

"A 16-year-old youth from the area, who is believed to have been driving the BMW at the time, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and is in custody and inquiries are ongoing."
