Exactly a year after a fatal hit and run, police renew their appeal to find the driver who killed a Goldthorpe man.

On December 29th last year, it’s thought that  56 year old Peter Topping was lying in the carriageway on Co-Operative Street in Goldthorpe when a vehicle drove over him causing fatal injuries and then drove off.

Despite extensive enquiries in the area the driver or vehicle has not been traced.

Police would like to speak to the owners of three different vehicles that are believed to have been in the area at the time of the offence. These are: a dark coloured Mercedes ‘C’ class, a dark coloured Land Rover Freelander and a silver coloured Audi A3.

Inspector Geoff Young said: "Although this incident is 12 months old we are still actively trying to trace the vehicle and the driver. The investigation is continuing but the police need the public's help.

"The makes and models of three vehicles that leftCo-operative Streetnear the time of the incident may contain witnesses. The drivers of the vehicles may live in the immediate area or may have been visiting someone, but if anyone has any information about them, please let us know."
