A reward of up to £2,000 has been offered for the arrest and conviction of a hit-and-run driver who killed a man in Hertfordshire.

David Alderson, 66, of Welwyn Garden City, was found by a cyclist at the side of the B1000 Welwyn Road, close to Sele Farm, Hertford, on 27 July.

Mr Alderson is believed to have been struck at some point between the previous evening and the early hours.

Independent charity Crimestoppers has offered the reward.

Mr Alderson, from Broadwater Crescent, was found at 06:50 BST directly opposite the pull-in to the bridleway which goes to Selebroom Wood.

Distraught family

Ann Scott, eastern regional manager for Crimestoppers, said: "Despite appeals by police for the driver to come forward the driver is yet to be traced.

"The family of David are distraught and just want to know what caused his tragic death."

Mr Alderson was 5ft 3in (1.6m) tall and slim with grey hair.

He was wearing dark grey or black jogging bottoms, a light blue polo shirt, black trainers, a navy blue anorak with a green lining and dark grey or black woollen gloves.

He may also have been wearing a dark woollen hat.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Hertfordshire Police or Crimestoppers.
