Police have made a renewed appeal for information a year after a South Yorkshire man was killed in a hit-and-run crash.

Peter Topping, 56, died after being hit by a car on Co-operative Street, Goldthorpe, at about 20:25 GMT on 29 December 2011.

Police said Mr Topping is believed to have been lying in the road when he was run over.

Officers said the driver, who has not been traced, failed to stop.

Insp Geoff Young, of South Yorkshire Police, said: "Although this incident is 12 months old we are still actively trying to trace the vehicle and the driver. The investigation is continuing but the police need the public's help."

He said the force was interested in speaking to the occupants of three vehicles that were believed to have been in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident.
