A 53-year-old man has been charged with causing the death of a teenage cyclist in Bath by dangerous driving.

Jake Gilmore, 19, a chef from Oldfield Park, was found by a passer-by on Midland Bridge Road on 16 November.

He was treated at the Royal United Hospital for serious head injuries but died two days later.

Police said Raymond Isherwood, of Bennett Street, Bath, had been remanded in custody pending a trial date.

He is also charged with failing to stop, failing to surrender to police bail, production of cannabis and perverting the course of justice by not parking his car at his home address and concealing damage to the car.
