A man who is believed to be responsible for the death of a biker last August is being hunted by police. He’s been named as Patrick Connors (pictured), 24, of no fixed address.

Connors is wanted for questioning following a fatal collision on the A47 Eye bypass in Peterborough.

Thirty-five year old Darren Davies, from Peterborough, was on his way to meet friends when he was hit by a stolen Mercedes saloon.

The driver of the vehicle, along with a passenger, walked away from the wreckage at the scene. Shockingly, when another motorist stopped to help the stricken rider the pair made off in his white Peugeot Expert van.

The van, with the logo ‘JF Linday’ on its sides, was later found dumped in a pub car park in Newborough, near Peterborough.

A police spokesman said: "We believe Mr Connors may have vital information that could help our inquiries into this collision and would urge him, or anyone who knows where he is, to get in touch.

"A young man lost his life in this collision and it is vital we talk to Mr Connors to see if he can help our investigation."

Anyone with information should contact Detective Sergeant Neil Sloan at Thorpe Wood Police Station on 0845 456 4564.
