Police investigating cyclist's death call for witnesses

Cyclist James Danson-Hatcher,
23, of Rugby Place, Brighton was hit and killed by a Fiat Bravo
at the junction of Saddlescombe Road and Devils Dyke Road, Hove,
on Thursday, April 5 at 5.40pm.

Sgt James Biggs of
Sussex Police said: "The vehicles that I am particularly keen to
trace are a dark blue Saab convertible, a red Vauxhall Corsa and
a Nissan Micra, colour unknown, which were heading south towards
Hove at the time of the collision.

"I also wish to
speak to the occupants of a vehicle that was heading north when
it turned left on to Devils Dyke Road, towards Devils Dyke,
immediately prior to the crash. The only description of this
vehicle is that it was white. None of these motorists are
suspected of any involvement in the collision and are purely
being sought as witnesses."

"Anyone with
information can contact me at Hove roads policing department on
0845 60 70 999."
