Police have released new CCTV footage of a light-coloured van they would like to trace following a fatal collision in August.

Officers from Nottinghamshire Police are appealing for its driver and other witnesses to the incident to come forward.

Cyclist Nicholas Highfield (41) from Mansfield Woodhouse, died following the collision with a green Izuzu 4x4 on the A60 Leeming Lane South at around 9.50pm on Thursday 21st August.

A 33-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident and was released on bail.

Police have released the new footage, taken at the One Stop Shop at the junction of Leeming Lane and Old Mill Lane, as they look to speak to a number of cyclists and joggers seen in the area, to come forward.

Detective Connie Xavier said: “Despite the amount of time that has passed, we hope this footage could jog the memory of anyone who was in the area that night.

“Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could help detectives to understand how this tragic collision took Mr Highfield’s life.”

Anyone with information should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800555111.
