His family are being supported by specially trained officers at this difficult time.

Detective Sergeant John Prendergast, who is leading the investigation, said: “First and foremost, our thoughts remain with Andrew’s family and friends at this time. They have previously released a tribute to Andrew, and we now kindly ask that their privacy is respected.

“Do you recall being in the Thumpers area of Hemel Hempstead at around 8pm on that Wednesday? I appreciate several weeks have passed now since the date that this incident took place, but if you think you were the person in the saloon type car, or if you have any information that you think may help us progress with our enquiries, please get in touch as a matter of urgency.

“Any information, even something that may seem relatively minor or insignificant, could be key to our investigation. We are continuing to work as hard as we can in order to ascertain the circumstances surrounding what happened, and we understand that there will be lots of questions in relation to what happened – we will provide a further update when we can.” please email DS Prendergast. or online web chat
