A court summons has been served to a 50-year-old man in relation to the hit and run incident in which 42-year-old Shane Lay was killed.

Mr Lay died on hospital last year after being involved in a collision with a Nissan Qashqai, which failed to stop at the scene.

The incident happened at around 1.40am on Friday, May 13, 2016 on Bridge Street in Bungay, with Mr Lay, of Loddon Road in Broome, dying in Addenbrooke's Hospital the following day.

Now, a court summons has been issued to a Halesworth man, who had previously been arrested in connection with the collision and bailed to allow further enquiries to take place.

He has now been summonsed to appear at Norwich Magistrates' Court on Thursday, September 28, where he will be charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Following his death, Mr Lay was described by a friend as 'always happy and cheerful'.
