Police want to speak to a cyclist who crashed into a man on the day he was murdered.

Adrian Locke, of Wych Road, Droitwich Spa, died from stab wounds after being found outside 42a Teme Road, Worcester on Wednesday, 2 January.

West Mercia Police said Mr Locke, 39, had been riding his bike near Rose Avenue on the day he was murdered when he collided with another cyclist.

Micah Golding, of Harborne, Birmingham has been charged with his murder.

Mr Locke died at the scene shortly after being found by police.

Brandy to apologise

It is believed the cyclist, a white man in his 30s or 40s, went to the nearby shops and bought Mr Locke a bottle of brandy to apologise for knocking him off his bike near the shops in Rose Avenue, police said.

Det Sgt Pete Sherwood said: "We are currently piecing together Adrian Locke's movements on the day he was stabbed and we have been told by a number of witnesses about this incident.

"We would like to speak to the gentleman involved as he may have some information that could prove useful to our investigation."

Mr Golding has also been charged with two counts of conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

Another man, Rafael Marks, aged 20 and of Nooklands Croft, Birmingham, has been charged with being Mr Golding's accomplice in the two counts of conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
