We are appealing for witnesses who may have seen a collision in Bristol this morning.

Officers were called to Antona Drive, in Shirehampton, Bristol, at around 1am today (Sunday 11 December) following a collision between a car and a pedestrian in which the car failed to stop.

A woman in her 50s and a man in his 60s have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and failing to stop following a road traffic collision.

Unfortunately, the pedestrian, a man in their 50s, died at the scene.

Our thoughts are with the his family during this difficult time and they are being supported by a specially trained family liaison officer.
