A man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, more than a decade after a young boy was killed.

Sam Walker was fatally injured in the hit-and-run incident in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, on 9 February 2003.

Nawnee Mackin, 34, is due at Manchester Magistrates' Court on 5 December and another man is being hunted by police.

Craig Chevelleau, 34, from Longsight, is wanted on suspicion of perverting the course of justice after failing to surrender to police custody.

'Examine conscience'

Greater Manchester Police reopened the investigation into the boy's death in 2012, nine years after he was hit by a car on Hardy Lane.

Sgt Lee Westhead said: "There are still a great many people in the community of Chorlton-cum-Hardy who have information about the death of Samuel Walker.

"I would urge these people to examine their conscience. If you have any information please do the right thing and come and speak to us, in confidence if necessary."

Sam was walking with his mother, sister and cousin in Chorlton-cum-Hardy when he was hit by the car.

His mother Jackie Thomson, sister Aimee Walker and cousin Faye Lim were uninjured.
