DETECTIVES hunting the hit-and-run killer of student Adam O'Toole are following up leads across Yorkshire and Lancashire.
Adam, a Huddersfield New College student, was left dying in the road at Salendine Nook by the driver of a blue Rover car.
The 18-year-old, from Holmbridge, was crossing New Hey Road at 10.30am on Tuesday, March 6, when he was hit by the car, which then sped off towards Outlane.
An e-fit of the driver has been released and police have widened the hunt to the Greater Manchester area.
Police confirm they have had a number of tip-offs about cars and people in Oldham and Rochdale.
They are now checking vehicles and visiting people's homes.
Adam was studying for a BTec National Diploma in sport.
He worked part-time at the Co-op in Holmfirth and was a Huddersfield Rugby Union Club junior winger and Academy player.
He was a talented player, who had had trials for Yorkshire.
Hundreds of people packed into St David's Church, Holmbridge, last month for his funeral.
Another poignant tribute has come from his fellow students at the College.
They have presented a book of condolence filled with messages and memories of Adam to his family.
College principal Philip Forrest said: "It was a very moving tribute.
"People had some wonderful things to say about Adam and they put them in the book.
"We have also passed onto his family all the work he had done in College including things such as his personal statement and his university reference letter.
"It was what his mum wanted".
* The driver of the blue Rover car was white and in his 20s.
He has a thin face, a prominent nose and long, dark brown, unkempt hair.
The car involved would have been badly damaged at the front. Police are anxious to hear from anyone who has seen an accident-damaged Rover.
