Manslaughter charge after Doncaster cyclist's death

A man has been charged with the manslaughter of a former international cycling champion following an alleged assault in Doncaster.

Ray Eden, 42, suffered head injuries in an incident near his home in Scawthorpe on 18 March and died three days later.

Luke Jolly, 24, of Scawthorpe, has been charged with manslaughter and is due to appear at Doncaster Magistrates Court on Tuesday,

He was originally charged with causing grievous bodily harm.

The charges against Mr Jolly were changed following Mr Eden's death.

Mr Eden won the national 100-mile time-trial cycling championship in 1995 and represented Great Britain four times in stage racing.

He was also a keen rower, and worked for cycle firm Planet X.
