A man has appeared in court charged with causing a 70-year-old woman "potentially life-changing injuries" when she was knocked down in Bristol.

The woman was crossing East Street in Bedminster at about 09:00 GMT on Tuesday when she was struck by a cyclist in a hit-and-run crash.

Conor Coltman, 26, of East Street, pleaded not guilty to two charges at Bristol Magistrates' Court.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Bristol Crown Court at a later date.

Mr Coltman is charged with causing bodily harm by wanton or furious driving and wounding or inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent.
