The family of a man who was killed in a suspected hit-and-run crash has pleaded for a man sought in connection with the incident to come forward.

Kalan Fletcher, 23, of Keymer, died just over a week ago in Hassocks, West Sussex, while walking home.

Sussex Police want to talk to Imran Shaukat, 26, who had been living in Worthing in West Sussex.

Mr Fletcher's mother, Stella Hawker, of Margate in Kent, appealed for Mr Shaukat to come forward.

'Good kid'

She said: "I know it must be hard for you as well but please hand yourself in."

The collision happened on the A273 London Road in Hassocks at about 04:30 BST on 22 October.

Mr Fletcher was found dead in the road by emergency services.

Mrs Hawker added: "I'm beside myself, he was such a good kid. Always joking and laughing, he is going to be sadly missed."

A white Ford Transit van, believed to have been involved in the crash, was recovered the following day in Worthing.

Mr Shaukat is believed to have connections to Luton, Barking and Manchester.
