Police investigating the death of Robert Hart at Parklife have issued five new pictures of potential witnesses they believe may hold the key to tracking down his attacker.

Robert, 26, died on Wednesday June 11, five days after the assault at the music festival in Heaton Park, Prestwich, which left him fighting for life with a bleed on the brain.

Greater Manchester Police’s (GMP) Crimewatch appeal in July featured pictures of 12 possible witnesses who officers believed could hold information crucial to the investigation.

As a result of that programme and subsequent assistance from the media, GMP have been able to identify 10 of the 12 people pictured, but are still keen to speak to the other two.

New pictures have come to light of the two women still be identified from the initial witness appeal, while officers have also issued the pictures of three more people they wish to speak to.

Det Ch Insp Phil Reade said: “The new pictures of the two women previously unidentified from past appeals should prove much more helpful in finding out who they are.

"I would urge them, or indeed any of the other three people pictured in this new appeal, to come forward and speak to us as soon as possible.”
