A MAN has been charged six months after a fatal collision.

Robert Valiant, 29, of Evesham Road, Grange Park, has been charged in connection with the death of 35-year-old Paul Brindle, who was killed as he walked home from a charity duck shoot in Poulton last year.

Valiant is accused of causing death by careless driving while unfit through drink and failing to stop, and will appear before Fleetwood Magistrates’ Court on March 27.

Mr Brindle was found with serious head injuries after being hit by a vehicle on Oldfield Carr Lane, in Poulton, last year.

He was taken to hospital but sadly pronounced dead on arrival.
