A renewed appeal for witnesses has been issued one year on from the death of Chase Tate, found dead on the roadside at Ulceby.

As previously reported, the 23-year-old, also known as Chase North, died on the A1104 at Miles Cross Hill, Ulceby on Saturday, January 7.

It is believed Chase was walking on the road towards Ulceby Cross from Alford at around 5am when he was struck and killed by a vehicle.

The vehicle that hit him failed to stop.

Two people were arrested last year in relation to the incident, however have since been bailed.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership said: “Police have spoken to everyone they know who used that road on the morning Chase was killed.

“Extensive enquiries have been carried out locally, however, officers have an open mind and believe someone may have information that will give the family of Chase answers as to what happened to their son that night.

“Do you know someone who was there that day but have not spoken to the police?

“Have you heard anything or been told something by someone who was there on the day?

“Have you any information you feel the police should know?”

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 54 of January 7, 2017.
