Police in the west German city of Hamm are using drawings by six-year-olds to trace a rogue driver who allegedly smashed through a road barrier.

The police praised the four young sleuths' sketches, saying they were officially part of the investigation.

The children were waiting to cross the road when they witnessed the driver, a woman with short blonde hair.

The driver "didn't care about the damage caused and kept driving", the police said on Facebook.
