A cyclist has admitted killing a pedestrian who died following a dispute on a one-way system in Hampshire.

Roy Galvin, 69, from Alverstoke, died three days after the dispute on Bury Road, Gosport, on 25 September.

Duncan Snellgrove, 28, of Mandarin Way, Howe Road in Gosport, pleaded guilty to manslaughter at Winchester Crown Court. He was initially charged with causing grievous bodily harm.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced in December.

Mr Galvin, a former Royal Navy serviceman, hit his head on the road after he was pushed to the ground and suffered a serious head injury, police said.
