Police have released CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to after a pedestrian was killed in a hit and run in Bolton.

John Richardson was walking along Rishton Lane on Friday September 20 when he was struck by a silver Vauxhall Vectra before the car drove off – later found on fire in Heywood Park View.

John died in hospital a week later after sustaining serious injuries to his hips, ribs, spine, skull and brain.

Witnesses described seeing a red Volkswagen Golf on Rishton Lane immediately after the incident.

Daniel Salvin, 23, of Eustace Street, Bolton was jailed on Monday for seven years and four months in relation to John's death.

Sergeant Andrew Page, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Although a man has been sentenced, police are still investigating this reckless incident.

“We are urging anyone who may know the man pictured or recalls seeing a red Volkswagen Golf to come forward and help us get in contact with them to discuss this incident."

Anybody with information should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
