A 16 year old's been arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenager police think was deliberately run over in Luton.

The 16 year old is the second person to be arrested over the death of Delaney Brown, 19 (right), who was hit by a silver BMW car while cycling along Vincent Road, Luton on the afternoon of Wednesday 5 September 2012.

Both suspects arrested have subsequently been released on bail, pending further enquiries.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Major Crime Unit are still trying to trace witnesses and information about the murder of Delaney Brown.

Police are also trying to trace a young woman with two children who was pushing a buggy along Vincent Road at the time of the crash.

Bedfordshire Police have established that on hearing the collision she ran to help, possibly speaking on the phone to paramedics, rather than walking in the opposite direction which had been previously suggested.

The woman, and anyone who knows her, is urged to contact the police.

DCI Steve Collin from the Major Crime Unit said: “We are making real progress with this case but I still need people to come forward and put what they know down on paper. People clearly have information about who was driving the silver BMW that was used to kill Delaney, they now need to do the right thing and speak to the police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Incident Room on 01707 355666, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
