The trial of a man accused of causing the death of a driver who police say was assaulted after a crash has been halted.

Father-of-two Stephen Walsh, 37, died at his home on Blenheim Avenue in Mapperley, Nottinghamshire, in July.

Oliver Brown, 21, of Golden Sands Caravan Park, Ingoldmells, Lincolnshire, pleaded not guilty to manslaughter at Nottingham Crown Court.

The jury was discharged and a new trial is due to begin on 1 May.

Mr Brown's girlfriend, Rosann Newton, 21, of Findern Green, Nottingham, pleaded not guilty to assisting an offender by giving false statements to police and deleting text messages from her mobile.
