Two dumped motorbikes have been recovered by police probing the death of a seven-year-old girl who was killed in a horror hit-and-run.

Tragic Katniss Selezneva was playing on her scooter yards from her front door when she was run over by a motorbike on Turnstone Road in Bloxwich, Walsall at 7pm on Thursday (July 27). A boy of 14 arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has today (Saturday, July 29) been released on bail, police said.

In an update issued today, West Midlands Police said officers had recovered two motorbikes found abandoned in Walsall. DS Paul Hughes said: "Our work to establish the facts around this tragic incident is continuing. We have recovered two motorbikes and they will now be forensically examined as part of those extensive enquiries.

"And at this awful time our thoughts remain with the family of Katliss, who are being supported and have asked to be left to grieve in private. I would also like to extend my thanks to all those people who have already come to us with information - it is truly appreciated. We would ask again that anyone who was at the scene does still come forward, as what they know may be valuable to our ongoing investigation."

Katniss’s devastated mother Tsvetelina paid tribute to the youngster on social media. In a heartrending post, she wrote: "God took her away too young and fragile. I don’t have strength and I don’t want to say goodbye to you, my star. My heart is bleeding, my soul is aching. Who will take care of you now up there my angel? Rest in peace sweet treasure. May your path be bright so you are not afraid of the dark without mom and dad."
