“The Range Rover failed to stop at the scene and we’re now appealing for the public’s help in order to trace the driver and establish exactly what happened in the moments leading up to the collision.

“I am particularly interested in speaking with anyone who may have dash cam footage and was in the area at the time. I’m also keen to talk to any members of the public who saw the Range Rover after the collision and noticed any damage to the front nearside headlamp.
