Her heavily pregnant mother Laura received a disturbing call that her daughter had been hit by the bike and rushed to the scene with her third child.

Emily and her friend had met to play together but within five minutes she was crushed.

Laura said: “There were two guys on motorbikes, one hit her and she went over the fence.”

She claims “they just drove away” when Emily’s friend called her frantically, while the young girl’s brother called the Scottish Ambulance Service to Livingstone’s address, the Daily Record reported.

Laura says everyone in the community is affected by what happened.

She said: “The fact that a child has to be hit in order to do something is disgusting, they just get away with it so quickly and quickly.

“I just find it disgraceful, accidents happen, but the fact that they left her not knowing if she was okay and just left is disgusting.

Emily’s leg had to be manipulated and put in a cast twice as it was too tight the first time.

Her mother said, “She’s really struggling with the crutches because she’s in a really heavy cast because her leg has had so many fractures.”

Laura says Emily handled it “pretty well” but is concerned about the mental impact the incident may have later on.

A doctor told the family they won’t know the extent of the damage for another six weeks.

The injury has already taken its toll and Emily worries that she won’t be able to fulfill her exciting role at school.

Her mother explained: “She’s so proud to be a sports ambassador and got her school hoodies with sports ambassador on the back, now she’s worried about it and says she doesn’t want to go any further.”

Police have launched an investigation to find those responsible.

They encourage anyone with information to come forward.

Inspector Kylie Barnard of Livingston Police Station said: “The victim and her family are devastated by this incident and we are asking for information to help identify those responsible.

“We’re also very interested in hearing from anyone who has private CCTV or dashcam footage.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident should call Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 3223 dated 6 August.
