A man has been charged with causing the death by dangerous driving of a 79-year-old pedestrian.

Audrey Tunstall, from Seaton in Cumbria, died in hospital after being struck by a car on the A596 in Workington on 22 October last year.

A 35-year-old woman who was with her on Dunmail Rise was also seriously injured.

Stephen Farragher, 47, of Thirlmere Avenue in the town, will appear before magistrates on 1 September.

He also faces a charge of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
