Detectives have released CCTV images of five people who may have information about the murder of a man in Derby at the bank holiday.
The footage shows a man and a woman walking along Sadler Gate at around 3.35am on Tuesday, April 10.
They walked in the direction of Derby Cathedral and used the cash machine at Lloyds TSB before walking back the way they came, passing The Olde Bell pub just as Mr Finlay was assaulted.
The pair have yet to come forward and officers believe they may have witnessed the incident.

The man has dark hair and was wearing a dark, long-sleeved top and dark jeans. He has facial hair and appears to be smoking. He used the cash machine while the woman stood and waited for him.
She is described as white with shoulder-length blonde hair. She wore a dress or skirt underneath a pale mid-thigh-length coat. She also wore high heeled shoes and carried a pale bag over her shoulder.
A still image of three men has also been released. The group walked along Sadler Gate from the direction of Bold Lane just after Mr Finlay was assaulted. Two of the men also used the Lloyds TSB cash point at around 3.38am.
The men are all white and wore dark trousers. Two wore white long-sleeved shirts and one wore a dark long-sleeved top.
Detective Inspector Andy Jones, who is part of the investigation team, said: “We believe these people may have seen what happened to Mr Ashley and may have information that could help our inquiries.
“We would urge these five people, or anyone who can help us to identify them, to come forward.”
Mr Finlay (24), of Spondon, died on Tuesday afternoon after being assaulted in Sadler Gate at about 3.30am that day.
A 29-year-old man has been charged with murder while a 45-year-old man, who was also arrested, has been released on police bail while further inquiries continue.
Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
