Detectives are investigating a serious collision in Redmile – in the Vale of Belvoir – and are asking for two key witnesses to come forward.

“However, they left prior to the police arriving. I’m particularly keen to speak to them as they may have key information or footage that could help my investigation.

“I’m also appealing for anyone else who was in the area at the time the collision occurred to come forward. If you saw what happened, have footage or saw either vehicle prior to the collision occurring, then please get in touch.”

If you were a witness or have any information call Leicestershire Police on 101 quoting reference 23*336963.
