The widow and daughters of a man knocked down and left to die in the road are appealing to the hit and run driver to come forward. Christopher Colegate's family says the person responsible must search his or her conscience and "do the right thing."

Police have released new CCTV footage of a car they would like to trace in connection with a fatal traffic collision in Poole.
Christopher Colegate was killed when he was hit by a car on the junction of Darby's Lane and Heath Avenue in December. The sixty-nine year-old died later in hospital.
Inspector Matt Butler, of Dorset Police's Traffic Unit, said: "We believe this car is significant to our investigation, It was seen travelling along Heath Avenue in the direction of Wimborne Road shortly after the collision.
I would urge the owner of this car, or anyone who recognises it - to contact Dorset Police, in confidence, as soon as possible."
A 84 year old man from Whitfield, near Dover, is appealing for drivers to take more care with vulnerable road users. Bob Horn was knocked off his mobility scooter in a country lane and left for dead. Andrea Thomas reports.
A club in Poole, that the victim of a fatal hit and run was walking to when he died, has offered a £1000 reward for information to find the driver.
The renewed appeal comes after 69-year-old Chris Colegate was hit by a vehicle on Friday 13th December in Poole who failed to stop at the scene.
Mr Colegate was on his way to the Oakdale Conservative Club when he was hit and they have offered the reward money in the hope it will lead to the arrest of an offender.
Like the rest of the local community we are really saddened by this incident. Chris Colegate was a regular at the club and had many friends here. We all miss him dearly. We urge anyone with any information about this tragic collision to do the right thing and contact Dorset Police. No matter how small, your information could be the missing piece of the jigsaw.”
– Bob Barnes, chairman of Oakdale Conservative Club
