A man is due in court later today after being charged following the death of a 27-year-old passenger in his car.

Andrew Carter, 30, is accused of causing the death of Craig Cooke by driving an Audi A4 without due care and attention on Lynn Road at Castle Rising, near King’s Lynn.

Mr Cooke of Burnham Avenue, Lynn, was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, where he later died of his injuries.

It followed a crash on the evening of September 17, 2018.

A plea hearing for Carter, of North Brink, Wisbech, has been listed at Norwich Crown Court later today (Monday, May 5) in front of Judge Stephen Holt.

The hearing is being conducted over Skype due to the current closure of courts to the pubic as a result of the lockdown imposed following the coronavirus outbreak.

Carter had previously been given unconditional bail.
