"The High Street is very busy around this time and there were a good number of people about, so I would ask that anyone, who has not yet come forward to police, get in touch as their information could be very helpful to our enquiry.
"We know that there were a couple of delivery drivers in the street and also a coach passing at the time. We'd be keen to see any dash-cam footage they may have."
