“We are particularly keen to hear from the driver of a white lorry who we believe was in the area around the time of the incident and may be able to assist us.

“I would also ask anyone who was on the road at the time and who may have dash-cam footage to get in touch.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 quoting reference 3122 of May 10, 2023.
