TWO people arrested after an elderly man was killed in a hit-and-run crash have been released on bail.
Emergency services were called to a 62-year-old man found lying in the road at Rottenstone Lane, Scratby, just after midnight on Sunday morning.
He was pronounced dead at the scene and police said he had been hit by a car that failed to stop. On Sunday morning they found a Renault Clio at a holiday park in nearby California which they believe was the car involved in the crash. Later on Sunday a 20-year-old woman was arrested California on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. A 29-year-old man was arrested for the same offence by officers in Fleggburgh at 8.30am.
Geoff Freeman, chairman of Ormesby St Margaret with Scratby parish council, said: “It is a terrible tragedy. Some family is having a dreadful weekend.
