Tests on body found in road
Road body
Forensic officers search the road
Police are looking for the driver of a red car believed to be damaged after the body of a man was found on a main road in Cambridgeshire.

Officers want to speak to the driver of a C or G registration Vauxhall Astra estate car which could have damage to the near side right wing.

Police believe the dead man had earlier been involved in a disagreement on a bus some time on Saturday.

The man, who was 26 and came from Haverhill, near Cambridge, has not yet been named by police.


His injuries indicate that he was struck by a car but there are a number of possibilities as to what happened before that

DI Paul Fullwood

He was found dead on the A1307 at nearby Linton.

Police also want to talk to a group of youths seen arguing with the man on the bus.

"We're keeping an open mind as to what happened," said Detective Inspector Paul Fullwood.

"His injuries indicate that he was struck by a car but there are a number of possibilities as to what happened before that.

"We want to hear from anyone who might have seen the disagreement on the bus or on the roadside.

"We think there would have been traffic on the road because it's a well-used local route.

"I also want to hear from the any driver who thinks he might have been in collision with the man."

He said the man had been on a night out in Cambridge and travelled back by bus.

"We are trying to find out what led to his death."

The body was eventually spotted by a motorist who alerted the emergency services.
