Police investigating a hit and run in which a man was killed in Park Royal earlier this year have released images of a woman they wish to contact.
Officers are stressing the woman is not a suspect, but they would like her to come forward because they believe she could provide important details about the collision.
The 53-year-old man from the Park Royal area was struck by a car when he was walking on Barretts Green Road near the junction with Acton Lane at around 3:24am on Friday, 30 June. The location is not far from Central Middlesex Hospital.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and police believe the car that hit him was a dark coloured BMW which failed to stop at the scene.
Officers from the Met's Serious Collision Investigation Unit say they have carried out extensive enquiries to locate the driver and to establish the circumstances but have yet to make an arrest.
Detective Sergeant Adam Todd said, "I would like to stress that we believe the woman in these images may have witnessed the collision. She isn't a suspect, however we are still keen to speak to her and ask that she contacts us immediately.
"A man has lost his life, and we are still carrying out extensive enquiries to locate the driver involved. I'd urge anyone else who witnessed the collision, or has information about what happened, to also get in touch."
