A 12-year-old girl from Yorkshire has died after being knocked down in a hit-and-run accident in Gran Canaria. Abigail Harris was killed and her friend Thomas Thackray, also 12, was injured when a car mounted the pavement in the resort of Puerto Rico, on the south coast of the island. Last night the girl's parents said their daughter "didn't have a chance". The family had been celebrating Abigail's sister's birthday when the girl was knocked down and killed during an evening stroll. Her parents Nicola and Tony Harris, from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, released a statement in which they spoke of their "treasured daughter".
