"He has got a stressful job so he just likes to go out and have a walk and just let the wind blow all the stress away.

"He was heading back home to watch his football team and unfortunately it just happened when he was walking up Roper Lane.

"Michael has no memory of what happened. He's doing fine but we need to find out who did this and hopefully someone will come forward or maybe know someone who did it.

"We just need information."

Road closures were put in place while the Mr Fearnley was taken to hospital by land ambulance and police officers made enquiries to establish the circumstances.

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and a vehicle has also been recovered for examination.

However both the people arrested and the vehicle have been eliminated from the investigation.
