Two people have appeared in court after a man was killed on a pedestrian crossing.

Liam Rogerson, 28, died in a collision with a black Vauxhall Corsa in Crossways Boulevard, Greenhithe, at just gone 6pm on Christmas Eve last year, just hours after he had arrived from his home near Sunderland to stay for the festive season.

The car was later found in Bexleyheath and Jamie Burchell-Reeves, 22, of Wakefield Road, Greenhithe, and Sophie Jane Clarke, 20, of Medway Road, Crayford, were arrested.

Both appeared at Medway Magistrates Court on Wednesday, with Burchell-Reeves accused of failing to stop after a road accident, failing to report the accident, causing death by dangerous driving, and being uninsured or unlicenced at the time of the accident.

Clarke was accused of dangerous driving between the scene of the accident and Medway Road, and allowing Burchell-Reeves to use the vehicle without insurance and a licence.
