A WOMAN who died after being hit by a car as she pushed her bicycle along a pavement in Aldeburgh was named by police today.

Suffolk police said Carol Ann Myhill, 61, of Aldeburgh, was on the pavement just before 11pm on Wednesday evening when she was hit by a silver grey Vauxhall Astra car.

She was taken to Ipswich Hospital by ambulance but she died soon afterwards.

Anne-Marie Breach, a spokeswoman for Suffolk police, said: ''An 18-year-old man from Leiston was initially arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and has now been bailed to return to Lowestoft police station on March 24 on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

''Police are asking anyone who may have seen the silver grey Vauxhall Astra being driven in the area around this time last night to come forward.

''From initial reports it's possible the car may have been in convoy with other vehicles between Leiston and Aldeburgh.''

Anyone who saw the Vauxhall Astra prior to the crash or the collision itself is asked to call Pc Gary Buss at the Serious Collision Investigation Team at police headquarters on 01473 613500.
