POLICE investigating a crash that claimed the lives of young mum Michelle Swinton and her soldier boyfriend Jamie Hall want to trace three people who may have witnessed it.

The accident happened at Blackhall Rocks just before midnight on last Saturday night.

Police have returned to the scene on Coast Road to put up witness appeal signs at the road side.

Officers particularly want to speak to three young people, possibly teenagers, who were at the scene just a few minutes after Jamie’s car crashed.

One of them, a boy with glasses aged about 16, approached a taxi driver and told him he had phoned for an ambulance.

The youth also told the driver he had approached the Seat Ibiza but had been unable to get to anyone inside.

The teenager was with two others, possibly younger, who were nearby.

Witnesses are asked to contact the force’s collision investigation unit on 375 2159.
