A reward of £5,000 is being offered for information about a fatal-hit and-run.

CCTV shows the moment cyclist Andell Goulbourne, 59, was struck by a grey BMW M135i on Washwood Heath Road, in Saltley, Birmingham, on 30 July.

West Midlands Police interviewed three men in connection with the collision but no one has been charged.

Crimestoppers has also offered a reward to trace 24-year-old Kashif Khan, who has been wanted in connection with the crash since August.

Andell Goulbourne was described by his family as "a beacon of light" and his death as a "cruel and heartless act"

Mr Goulbourne, known as Spring-i, was "callously left in the road", Det Sgt Paul Hughes said at the time of the hit-and-run.

Nyesha Smith and Samantha Higgins, Mr Goulbourne's daughters, appealed for information alongside his sister, Carol Gordon.

Ms Higgins said she had spoken to her father on her birthday, two days before he died.

"He said 'love you, bab', as he always does, and that was our last conversation," she said.

Ms Gordon said she was "really angry".

"If the driver would have just concentrated on his speed, we wouldn't be here today," she said.

The street was busy with Eid celebrations at the time of the crash and people can be seen rushing to Mr Goulbourne's aid in the CCTV released by police.

His family appealed for people who saw what happened to "do the right thing" and come forward.
