Police have released a picture which shows three men on Ross Walk at about 19:50 GMT on 24 January.

Officers said the group may have "vital information" about events in the area that night.

Earlier, detectives appealed for information about a white van and motorcycle pictured on Aylestone Road, Leicester.

Leicestershire Police said the motorbike was seen in convoy with the van driving in Sanvey Lane towards Marsden, shortly after being seen in Aylestone Road just after midnight on 25 January.

A bike has been recovered, along with a burnt-out van, but officers said they needed to trace the movements of the vehicles pictured.
