Witnesses to fatal Shiregreen Road collision sought

Police officers investigating a collision in which 89-year-old Celia Jackson died are keen to speak to the two men pictured as they may have witnessed the collision and could hold important information.

At about 9.55am on Wednesday 31 July, it is reported that a Mercedes A160 was in collision with pedestrian Celia Jackson, on Shiregreen Road and then collided with a parked car on Jenkin Road before coming to a stop. 

PC Richard Thorley, investigating, said: “As our enquiries continue I’m now asking for the public’s help to identify the two men pictured in this CCTV image. 

“They are seen outside the Late Shopper on Wincobank Avenue, when the collision occurred, with one of the men appearing to look towards the scene before the Mercedes drives past them on to Jenkin Road. 

“A short time later they are seen to walk past the scene of the collision. I am really keen to speak to these two men and would ask them to get in contact with us straight away. 

“Likewise, if you know them, please get in touch. If you can help, call us on 101 quoting incident number 212 of 31 July 2019.”
