Police have issued a further appeal for information following the death of a 58-year-old man in a Royston fire engine crash last week.

Pedestrian Mitchell Bailey, 58, died when a fire engine lost control and crashed as it turned right from Old North Road into Burns Road in Royston on Wednesday last week.

The fire engine crew were responding to an emergency call at the time of the crash, around 8.45pm.

Sgt Richard Cruse – from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Forensic Collision Investigation Unit – said: “Our thoughts remain with the man’s family and friends at this very difficult time.

“Our investigations into the incident are continuing and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who saw the fire engine prior to the collision and hasn’t already spoken to police, to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the BCH Forensic Collision Investigation Unit via non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 771 of January 18.
