AN APPEAL has been issued to help find a witness who provided first aid to a man who died after being hit by a car in Holyhead.

Officers investigating the fatal collision where Dean Short, 54, died on Tuesday night are appealing for the key witness to come forward.

The investigation has identified a man who provided first aid to the victim before the emergency services arrived.

Sergeant Meurig Jones of the Roads Policing Unit said: “We know this man tried to help the victim and therefore we believe he may have important information that can help us progress with our enquiries.

“If you were that man please get in touch with us as soon as possible by calling us on 101 or contacting us via our website quoting incident number Y027144.”

The collision between a black Ford Fiesta and Mr Short, happened shortly after 7pm on the A5 London Road leading towards Valley.

Sgt Jones added: “Our sympathies go out to Mr Short’s family and friends at this difficult time.

“We are still appealing for anybody who witnessed the incident, or who saw a man walking between Tesco and the scene of the collision between 6:30pm and shortly after 7pm, and who are yet to contact us to do so as soon as possible.”

Mr Short's sister Kerys paid tribute to her 'wonderful' brother, adding: "He touched so many people's hearts and was always kind and considerate to others. His legacy was 'be kind to others'."

He leaves behind his two daughters, Meleri and Beca who Kerys says he 'adored and spoke of so often'.

Anybody with information that could assist with the Police investigation, is asked to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit on 101 or via the live webchat quoting reference number Y027144.
