He has been formally identified as 22-year-old Peter Buckmaster, of Sunbury.

Detective Sergeant Jeff Edwards, who is leading the investigation, said: "We have spoken to a number of witnesses so far. I am grateful to a number of people who stopped at the scene to assist the casualty that night.

“We would still like to speak to one man who we believe was standing outside the Meadhurst Sports Ground at the time of the collision. If that was you I would ask you to contact police."

A post-mortem examination was held at Westminster Mortuary on Thursday, 10 April. The result of the post-mortem examination is yet to be confirmed,
