A British engineer is fighting for his life after being mown down in a hit-and-run in France.

Adam Fryer, 35, was working on an off-shore windfarm in the English Channel when the tragedy happened.

Adam had been on a night out with two of his colleagues when he was hit by a car in Fécamp, Normandy.

He is believed to have been "mown down" by a grey Renault Clio 2 at around 1.30am on Thursday.

It is thought that Adam was left on the side of the road as the driver fled.

Police are trying to trace the driver who they say may have a cracked windscreen following the collision.

Adam, of Conwy, North Wales, is now in intensive care at Charles-Nicolle hospital in Rouen with his parents at his bedside.

He is a regular gym goer who had previously taken part in the gruelling Marathon Des Sables race across the Sahara Desert.

Dwain Jones, who set up the page, said: "The family would like to thanks everyone for their kind words and support it means so much.

"His mum and dad are there with him by his side and will keep us updated as and when they can."

Dozens of people have taken to social media to express their devastation over the situation, with many saying their thoughts and prayers were with Adam

He was described by one friend as "superman", with another saying he was a man that "does so much for everyone".
