The family of a woman who was run over and killed by a stolen car have urged the driver to come forward.

Susan Gravel, 62, was hit while walking along Station Road, in Stainforth, Doncaster at about 12:55 GMT on Saturday.

She was struck by a grey or silver BMW 5 Series that failed to stop and was later found abandoned in Goole.

Mrs Gravel's family said they needed to know what happened in order to lay her to rest.

Her sister Val said: "Susan was well liked and well known locally, we're thankful for everyone's kind words and thoughts.

"Whoever is responsible, if you know something about what happened or who might have been involved, please tell police.

"We need the missing piece of the puzzle so we can lay Susan to rest and find some answers.

"If you know or saw anything, no matter how small - it could be vital. Please call police, or if you're the driver, hand yourself in."

Insp Mark Hughes said the force was grateful to Mrs Gravel's family for their support.

He added: "Our investigation continues in earnest and the recovery of the BMW is a positive step but we still need help from the public to identify those responsible for this crime."
