Police hope the photograph will jog other festival-goers' memories

A photograph of a festival-goer who was killed after being hit by several cars has been issued in the hope of triggering more information.

Paul Wickerson, 32, from Sydney, Australia, was hit by up to four cars on 31 August while walking from Brownstock Festival, near South Woodham Ferrers in Essex.

Police said the photo was being issued nationally.

Four men have been arrested and bailed as part of the inquiry.

Mr Wickerson had been at the Stow Maries-based festival and left at about 22:20 BST, wearing just a pair of shorts.

Police said they believed he had been ejected from the festival.

He died at about 22:45 BST on Lower Burnham Road, Cold Norton.

Others ejected

Det Con Keith Sloggett said: "We are seeking any information as to where Mr Wickerson was during his final hour.

"The investigation is also looking to gain information about how Mr Wickerson arrived at the location where he was involved in the collision, which is approximately two-and-a-half miles from the festival.

"In addition to that, we are also keen to hear from anyone that was ejected from the festival that weekend."

The three-day festival attracted about 6,000 people and it was headlined by acts including The Fratellis, DJ Yoda, Mark Ronson and Professor Green.

Four men are due to answer police bail on 19 February.
