A man wanted on suspicion of the murder of a mum-of-one killed in a hit-and-run last week remains on the run.

Alison McBlaine, 36, was hit by a car in Blackburn, Lancashire, on Tuesday evening and died two days later from her injuries.

Police believe the Fiat Punto Grande that hit her deliberately mounted the pavement in Whalley Banks at around 7. 45 pm .

Detectives investigating her murder are continuing to search for Dean Qayum, 20, who may be using crutches due to a leg injury.

They have warned anyone hiding him will also be arrested.

Detective Chief Inspector Lee Wilson said: ‘Dean Qayum remains wanted in connection with this extremely serious offence.

‘Police want to speak to him and I believe he is being harbored in and around the Blackburn area at this time.

‘I would warn anyone who is protecting him, or helping to hide him, that we will identify this during our investigation and they will also be arrested and prosecuted.

‘My thoughts and those of the team engaged on this inquiry remain with Alison’s loved ones, in particular her 12 – year-old son Reagan.

‘I would urge anyone with information about what has happened, or knows where Qayum is, to do the right thing – please come forward and speak to police immediately.’

Another man wanted in connection with Alison’s death, Kaylib Connolly, 18, was arrested on Sunday.

A 26 – year-old man and a second person arrested on suspicion of murder remain in custody , a spokesman for Lancashire Police said.

Another suspect, 25, who was also arrested on suspicion of the same charge has been bailed to 19 December.

Alison died in hospital on Thursday with her family, including her son Reagan, 12, by her bedside.

Police said the Fiat that hit her failed to stop at the scene and was later found with significant front end damage.

Attempts had been made to set the vehicle on fire, they added.

A 26 – year-old man was also hit in the collision and suffered serious injuries, police said.
