Can you help us find this witness⁉️

Shortly after 10.30pm on Saturday, October 19, we were called to Remscheid Way in Ashington after a report that a cyclist had been in collision with a vehicle.

Emergency services attended and found the cyclist Adam Murray, 25, of Blyth had suffered serious injuries after being struck by a Volkswagen Bora, which had then left the scene.

Adam was taken to hospital with critical injuries but sadly died two days after the collision.
Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and now we have released CCTV footage of a key witness we want to speak to.

Through CCTV enquiries they found a second cyclist was in the area in the moments before the collision and may have seen something that will assist the investigation.

Sergeant Pinner Rana, of our motor patrols department, said: “This was an awful incident that tragically claimed the life of a well-liked and much-loved man.

“This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for Adam’s family and specialist family liaison officers are still supporting them at this difficult time.

“We are committed to getting them answers and we hope the witness in this footage could help us piece together exactly what has happened.

“I would like to thank the members of the public that have already provided footage to us and I urge any witnesses who are yet to come forward, or anyone who was passing through the area and may have dashcam footage, to pick up the phone and get in touch.”

The man, or anyone who knows him, should contact us on 101 quoting reference log 1152 19/10/19. You can also report online at our website
