Two men have been jailed for their part in the death of a man killed in a hit-and-run crash in Bradford.

Richard Taylor, 59, died after being hit by a car in Manningham last July.

Ihsan Khan, 23, was jailed for six years at Bradford Crown Court for causing death by dangerous driving and perverting the course of justice.

Javed Ali Zaman, 22, was jailed for seven years for attempting to pervert the course of justice and other unrelated offences.

Khan, of Woodlands Street, Bradford, had previously admitted the offences.

Zaman, also pleaded guilty to attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to Mr Taylor's death.

Mr Taylor, from Bingley, was struck by the car as he crossed the A650 Keighley Road.

He was taken to hospital but later died.

His sister Jane Taylor said: "Richard was a good, kind person who was at a time in his life where he was the happiest he had ever been."
