A potential trial date has been set for a man accused of cycling dangerously.

David Tilley, 38, has been charged with causing bodily harm by wanton or furious driving after a woman suffered serious head injuries following an incident on Louden Road, Cromer, on April 15 last year.

The woman died four months after the incident.

Barrister Matthew McNiff appeared remotely via Skype for Tilley, of Christophers Close, Northrepps, near Cromer, who was not present for the short hearing.
