Police have today appealed for those drivers to come forward as soon as possible.

Assistant Chief Constable Rob Griffin, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "If you drove along Hall Lane in Colston Bassett on Friday evening we need to speak to you immediately.

"We are aware that a number of motorists drove past the area in question at the key time and may have seen a man in the area.

"If that was you and you saw anything at all, or if you have dash-cam footage, it is vital that you come forward. Even if you drove down there but didn't notice anything we would still like to talk to you.

Any information you can provide could prove to be a crucial piece of evidence in the investigation."

A team of detectives is continuing to work tirelessly to follow up a number of lines of enquiry, including CCTV, forensics and speaking to people with information as they build up a detailed sequence of events and gather evidence.

Detectives and uniformed officers also remain in the area to investigate and provide reassurance to the community.

Anyone with information is urged to call 101, quoting incident number 669 of 26 February 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
