Max Hartshorne Max Hartshorne was killed on Sunday 19 August.

Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses two months after a pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run on a Gloucestershire road.

Max Hartshorne, 24, was hit as he walked along the B4696 Spine Road East, South Cerney, near Cirencester.

Gloucestershire Police said it happened at about 00:30 BST on Sunday 19 August.

A 50-year-old man from Malmesbury in Wiltshire who was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, is no longer under arrest, police said.

Sgt Dave Kania, from Gloucestershire Police, said: "Over the last couple of months we have been carrying out a thorough investigation into the incident, which so sadly claimed Max's life.

"We've spoken to several witnesses and drivers that were in the area around the time of the collision but we're still eager to hear from anyone that was driving on the road that night that may be able to help us establish the exact sequence of events that lead to this tragic incident."
