A fourth person is believed to have been in the vehicle, but left the scene. He is being treated as a witness and may have key information to assist with the investigation.

He is described as white, in his 20s, with dark curly hair and a beard.

Detective Inspector Alan Page said: “I’d appeal directly to the man who left the scene to contact us as a matter of urgency. I would like to stress that he is being treated as a witness and we believe he may have vital information to help us piece together a picture of what happened last week.
