Leo tragically died after the incident on 28 August on a pedestrian crossing in Topsham road on Thursday afternoon.

Leo was initially treated at scene by a member of the public and then paramedics. Leo was taken to the R D & E Hospital where he was pronounced deceased shortly after arrival.

There are dozens or bouquets and tributes left at the scene.

Police investigating the collision are also appealing for a specific witness to get in touch.
CCTV footage from the scene shows a cyclist cycling close to the collision just after it has occurred. This cyclist travels from Countess Wear roundabout direction, crosses Topsham road between the scene & the roundabout onto the south side of Topsham road, then cycles away from the roundabout towards Topsham.
The cyclist appears to be wearing a dark top and white trousers. Officers are keen to speak to the cyclist as a potential witness who may have information.
Police are appealing to the cyclist to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 480 of 28th August.
