Detective Chief Inspector Pete Montgomery said: "I would like to hear from anyone who was driving in the area of the Glen Road and Clonelly Avenue around 3.10pm and just afterwards as I need to eliminate your car from my enquiries.

"I also need to see any dash-cam footage which could be of use to my investigation.

"Please come forward to police by calling 101 without delay as your dash-cam footage could hold vital clues."
