Police are renewing their appeal for further potential witnesses to a fatal collision in Guisborough.
17-year-old Sonny Stephenson from Guisborough was fatally injured in the collision which occurred on Sunday 27th August, which was the day before the August Bank Holiday.
Officers are particularly keen to identify the driver and any passengers of a red pick-up which drove up Park Lane towards Bolckow Street and which was travelling just in front of the motorcycle ridden by Sonny and another male.
CCTV images from the area show this vehicle approaching the junction of Park lane and Hollymead Drive at around 9.15pm that Sunday and police would like to establish if the driver or any passengers saw or heard anyone or anything as they approached the location of the incident.
Another person who could have vital information was walking up Park Lane in the direction of Bolckow Street at around 9.15pm.
CCTV shows them crossing the road at the TA Centre and heading towards Whitwell Terrace.
This person is described as slim and wearing dark clothing.
Witnesses are asked to contact Cleveland Police via the 101 number.

54-year-old Anthony McQuade from Laburnum Road in Redcar left home in his orange Peugeot car with registration number PN51 CXY.

Anthony was last spotted in the Houghton-le-Spring (pron "Ho-tun") area at 01.37 on Thursday morning.
He is believed to be wearing a navy and white striped T-shirt or jumper and very faded black jeans.
Anyone with any information about Anthony's whereabouts is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
