AN ELDERLY man has died after being hit by a pick-up truck on a petrol station forecourt in Wellesbourne.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident at the Shell Garage on Warwick Road on Wednesday September 12.

The 88-year old man, who has not yet been named, was on foot and was believed to have had taken shelter under the canopy from a sudden downpour of rain at around 6.20pm when he was hit by a Mitsubishi pick-up.
