A man is to go on trial accused of causing death by dangerous driving after a man was killed when he fell from the back of a vehicle.

Scott Baisley, 28, from St Olaves, near Great Yarmouth, suffered a serious head injury following the accident in Kings Road, Bradwell, on June 22, 2017.

The service support manager was rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for treatment, but died four days later on June 26.

Tyrone Clarke, 31, appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Friday, March 22 charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Clarke, of Howard’s Way, Bradwell, who used crutches as he climbed into the dock, pleaded not guilty.

A trial, which is expected to last three to four days, was listed for July 29.

Clarke was granted conditional bail until then.
