Officers investigating the death of Melvyn Hargreaves, who was assaulted in the early hours of Friday Jan 2 on Mercian Way in Derby, have appealed for two people to contact them.

The couple have been caught on CCTV cameras walking up Green Lane in Derby at 12.35am that same morning.  Officers believe they may have seen the man suspected of assaulting Mr Hargreaves.

Detective Sergeant Chris Waters said: “The CCTV images are unclear but we hope that the couple will recognise themselves or their friends may identify them.”
