Three people have been arrested over the hit and run death of a five-year old - ten years after he was killed as he walked to his grandmother's house.
Samuel Walker was run down in front of his mother in 2003 as they were on their way to a family picnic with relatives.
The youngster - described by his family as a 'little angel' - was rushed to hospital with severe injuries but died later that day.

Police found a silver Mitsubishi Galant dumped half a mile away, but despite a £20,000 pounds reward for the killer’s capture plus public appeals for information by the boy’s family, the culprit remained free. The car was reported stolen shortly after the accident.
Following a tip off Greater Manchester Police said a 33-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after a re-appeal on the tenth anniversary of Sam’s death.
Officers also detained a 31-year-old man on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and perjury and a 56-year-old woman on suspicion of perjury.

An unsolved case is never closed. There are so many examples of it.
It's time to highlight the ones, who have chosen their job for all of the right reasons.
And maybe spend a bit less on the few, that use their position to cover-up shady dealings ...
