Police have released a man under investigation in connection with a suspected hit-and-run incident that led to the death of an 86-year-old man.

Brian Mitchell, from Lowestoft, died on December 23 after over a month in hospital.

Emergency services originally came to Mr Mitchell’s aid at 12.50am on Wednesday, November 15, following reports that an injured man had been found close to Jubilee Way petrol station.
