Driver faces court for death of Freddie Hussey

24/07/2014

A driver has been issued with a summons following the death of three-year-old Freddie Hussey in Bristol in January this year.

CPS District Crown Prosecutor, Jonathan Richards said: "Having reviewed the evidence presented by Avon and Somerset police, I have today decided that it is sufficient for a realistic prospect of conviction and that it is in the public interest to prosecute Anthony Davies for the manslaughter of Freddie Hussey and causing death by dangerous driving."

"I must remind media and members of the public of the Contempt of Court Act and of their obligation not to report anything that could prejudice or interfere with criminal proceedings."

Mr Davies, aged 37, from Hallen, South Gloucestershire, is due to appear before Bristol Magistrates Court on Friday 15 August.
