Police investigating a hit and run in Islington in which a new father died have released an image of a car they think may be connected to the incident.

Motorcyclist Christian Flaubert Miranda Borges died in the accident in Baring Street.

The 29-year-old was a Brazilian national living in Gladstone Park Gardens, Brent. He was engaged and recently became a father to a baby boy.

Mr Borges was working as a takeaway delivery driver when he died in the collision on November 29.

Police were called at around 6pm to reports of a collision between a motorcyclist, a London taxi and another vehicle.

The driver of the taxi stopped at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle stopped ahead at New North Road but then drove off.

London Ambulance Service (LAS) attended, but Mr Borges was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem help on December 3 at St Pancras Mortuary gave cause of death as a traumatic neck injury, and an inquest was opened and adjourned at St Pancras Coroner’s court on Wednesday.

The vehicle that did not stop is described as a green people carrier.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit at Northolt are leading the inquiry.

Detective Sergeant Chris Osborne of the unit said: “We are continuing to study a vast amount of CCTV but it is clear it was a very busy time and there were a lot of people in the area at the time.

“We would urge those people to come forward with information no matter how trivial it is.”

Anyone with information call police on 020 8842 1817.
