A MAN is in a critical condition in hospital after a collision, with police launching an urgent appeal to find his family.

Paul Anthony Clough, originally from Burnley, was hit by a car in Birmingham on Tuesday April 2 and police say his family are still not aware of what happened with officers 'struggling' to trace them.

Officers both in Birmingham and Lancashire have urged anyone who may be able to help to come forward.

Sergeant Mark Crozier, of the West Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Team, said: “Mr Clough remains in a critical condition in hospital so it’s important that we find his family and update them on his condition.

“I would urge the family of Mr Clough to get in touch or anyone who has any information on who his next of kin may be.”

The incident happened as Mr Clough crossed Wood Street, near the junction with Monument Road in Ladywood, just after 10pm.

The 46-year-old suffered head and leg injuries and was rushed to hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

But Mr Clough's family are still not aware of what has happened.

Anyone with information on his next-of-kin was urged to make contact with police by calling 101 and asking for West Midlands Police, quoting log 4688 of April 20.
