Officers investigating the death of a Harrogate cyclist 14 years ago have today launched a fresh appeal for information to trace the hit and run driver.
47-year-old Stefan Forge died on 22 August ,2001 after being hit by an unknown vehicle as he cycled with a friend along the A658 towards Buttersyke Bar near Harrogate.
The vehicle that hit Stefan and his friend - at around 11.15pm - failed to stop at the scene.
Tragically Stefan died from his injuries. His friend, who was severely traumatised by the incident, survived but suffered serious injuries.
Police investigating the collision are now carrying out a review of the case and to coincide with the fourteenth anniversary of the collision, are appealing to anyone who has any information but has not contacted the police.
“14 years have passed since Stefan died and I am hoping that with the passage of time, someone is now in a position to come forward with information that can help our investigation.
“Stefan’s family have had to carry on with their lives, not knowing the full circumstances of his death or who was responsible.
"We are still working on behalf of them, and hope that someone with that vital piece of information that will lead us to the identity of the vehicle and its driver, is out there.
“It may be that back in 2001, they felt they could not come forward with that information, but perhaps circumstances have changed and they are now in a position to share that information. "For the sake of Stefan and his family, I urge you to please get in touch and tell us what you know.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Ian Pope, or email email@example.com
If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Police are urging a man wanted for recall to prison to hand himself in. A warrant was issued for the arrest of 24-year-old Ashley Fulcher two weeks ago after he breached his licence conditions.
Ashley, if you see or hear this appeal, our advice is simple – hand yourself in. By remaining at large you are only making the inevitable outcome worse for yourself and prolonging your stay in prison when we catch up with you. We are also asking members of the public who see Ashley Fulcher to contact us straight away.
Expect the unexpected as we found out tonight. A glancing blow but fortunately Bambi ran off apparently uninjured http://t.co/fMluODBpng

Nightclubs and bars in York are to be given breathalysers to help stop people who've had too much to drink being allowed in. It's part of a police initiative to reduce alcohol-related trouble in the city. They're also increasing the number of patrols during weekend evenings.
The breathalysers are another tool to help us tackle drink-related disorder and violence. Many people pre-load before going out for the evening and are already heavily intoxicated before they enter a bar. Much of the disorder and violence we are called to deal with is triggered by excessive alcohol intake. Being drunk and out of control also makes people more vulnerable. The breathalysers will support door staff in the difficult job of challenging people who they believe have drunk too much.
Police are appealing for witnesses and information about a possible assault involving a woman and boy in Scarborough town centre. It happened outside Boots on Westborough between 12.20pm and 12.45pm on Tuesday 23 December 2014. Police received reports from members of the public that a woman was assaulting the boy.

Officers are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and are asking people with information to come forward. A local woman aged in her late 20s has been arrested in connection with the investigation. Following questioning she was released on police bail to allow time for further enquires. The boy was medically examined and did not require treatment.
