Crimestoppers also offered a 1,000 reward for information leading to the prosecution of the driver who fled the scene.

Mr Hendry lived in Halfpenny Lane, around the corner from where the accident happened.

At the time of the accident Mr Hendry's relatives, said: "Bill was a lovely, caring family man and we are struggling to come to terms with what has happened."

Now as his family prepare to mark a year since Mr Hendry's, acting Det Insp Andy Horne said the driver must "do the right thing" and hand him or herself in.

Throughout the 12 month investigation North Yorkshire Police have maintained that the person responsible would be aware that they struck a pedestrian.
