You should note before watching this clip, it shows a graphic image of the man being hit by the car that viewers may find distressing.

Police have released CCTV in a bid to identify the driver involved in a hit and run in Brighton.

Officers are looking to speak to people who were in the area at the time and may be able to help with the investigation.

At 3.40pm on Thursday, January 14 a 53-year-old man was hit by a Fiat 500 as he crossed Montague Place in the Kemptown area.

The Fiat was being driven along Bristol Road before turning left into Montague Place where it collided with the man crossing the road.

It didn’t stop at the scene and can be seen to carry on along Montague Place and turn right into College Street.

The car has been located but the identity of the driver has not been established yet.

The victim suffered serious injuries.

Sergeant Dan Pitcher said: “We are very keen to trace the drivers of the taxi, the silver van, the dark Ford Focus and the black parked car.

We think you could give us vital information we need to identify the driver.

Were you the taxi driver and do you have a dash camera which may have captured the Fiat as it drove past? Were you in the silver van and did you notice who was driving as the Fiat approached the junction? The Ford turned before the Fiat and you may have seen something in your rear view mirror.

We believe the woman in the parked car was in it during the time of the collision, did you see what happened?

“We are keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or can give us information which will help with our investigation? The Fiat drove off leaving the victim for dead and clearly they would have known they had hit someone.

The pedestrian, a man from Hove, suffered serious head injuries and is thankfully making a recovery.”

A Fake fundraising page has been set up in the name of six-year-old Daisy Dymyd who died.

The fraudulent profile is claiming to be raising money for the funeral of Daisy.

“She will be so missed by everyone that knew her. She was a such a happy little girl who lit up our lives and made the world brighter.”
