    A Kidderminster motorist has admitted causing the death of a Stourport man, while driving uninsured.

    He didn't enter a plea on charges of failing to stop after an accident, failing to report it and failing to provide his name and address. 

    The case, at Worcester Crown Court, has been adjourned until 24 June for reports.
