Police in Brighton have released CCTV footage of a brutal hit and run in the city. Officers are appealing for witnesses, after a 53-year-old man from Hove was hit by a Fiat 500 on Montague Place, in the Kemptown area, on 14 January.

The CCTV clip shows the man flip into the air, smash into parked cars on the side of the street, and land in the middle of the road. The victim suffered serious head injuries after the collision, but is making a good recovery.

Sergeant Dan Pitcher from Sussex Police said, "We are keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or can give us information which will help with our investigation. The Fiat drove off leaving the victim for dead, and clearly they would have known they had hit someone".

The car has since been located, but the identity of the driver is still unknown.
