The family of a great-grandmother killed in a hit-and-run were appealing for information one year on.

Barbara Liddle, 76, of Camp Road, St Albans, was hit by a vehicle while crossing the road outside her home at around 8.20pm on September 28, 2017. Kevin Donaghey-Liddle, her son, paid tribute in October in the hope it would encourage someone who knows what happened to come forward.

He said: “Mum was always a shoulder to lean on.

“She was there for my marriage to Brian and did the honour of walking me down the aisle - I will never forget that.

“We miss her visits to us in Blackpool for holidays and our weekly catch-up phone calls every Sunday.

“This is a time of great sadness for us all and we urge anyone with information to come forward.”

Mr Donaghey-Liddle lives in Blackpool with his husband Brian.

Last December, the Royston Social Club on College Road, St Albans, held a darts tournament in memory of Barbara and raised £1,000 for her family.

Police are still asking for the driver of the car and anyone with information to come forward.

PC Jackie Lister said: “Somewhere out there is the person who did this, and for the past year they have carried on living their lives.

“Meanwhile Barbara’s family have had to cope with the devastating consequences of that person’s actions after they chose to leave the scene.

“To have a loved one taken from you so cruelly in this way is unimaginable, and even though we know it won’t bring her back we want to get answers for Barbara and her family.”
