In a new appeal released today (Tuesday) with a CCTV image, a spokesman for the force said: “Shortly before 1.50am on New Year’s Day (January 1) 2023, a man in his 30s left a pub in Baker Street, Irthlingborough and fell backwards into the road and struck his head on the ground, sustaining a serious head injury.

"However, before the man could receive medical assistance, the driver of a white van collided with the man on the ground and drove off without stopping at the scene.”

And the police spokesman added: "Officers believe the man in the image may have information which could assist with their investigation, and are asking him, or anyone who recognises him, to get in touch.”

Anyone with information regarding the man’s identity is asked to get in touch by calling Northamptonshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
