Police have renewed appeals to trace the occupants of a van which failed to stop after killing a pedestrian on a Shropshire road.

Father-of-three Dale McNamee, 36, from Harmer Hill was found dead on the A458 near Cound between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth at 04:20 GMT on 26 November.

He had suffered serious head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers believe Mr McNamee had been hit by a white box-type van travelling towards Bridgnorth.

Police said Mr McNamee had walked about a mile from the Chestnuts area of Cross Houses towards Bridgnorth when he was hit at Venus Bank.

They added the road was unlit and he had been wearing dark clothing.

Det Insp Sarah Wagstaff, of West Mercia Police, said Mr McNamee may have been lying partly in the road when he was struck by a van carrying two people wearing fluorescent jackets.

"The occupants of the van will be aware of what happened and I repeat our appeals for them to make contact with the police by calling the non-emergency 101 number," she said.
