OAP Asda car parking row ‘killer’ in court
AN OAP has appeared in court after a row over a disabled parking bay allegedly ended in a man’s death.
Alan Watts, 65, ( above) is charged with causing the death of Brian Holmes, 64, on August 8, after he suffered severe head injuries in a fall outside an Asda store.
After hitting his head, Mr Holmes was rushed to Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, but died the next day.
It later emerged the granddad, who was a carer for his wife Christine, 60, had been given the all-clear in his battle with cancer just days earlier.
Mr Watts, a builder from Biggleswade, Beds, appeared at Bedford Magistrates’ Court yesterday where he spoke to give his name and address.
His case was passed immediately up to Luton Crown Court to be dealt with.
Mr Watts was bailed until his next court appearance and told he must surrender his passport and must not apply for any foreign travel documents.
He must sign in at his local police station every day and was told he cannot visit the Asda store in Biggleswade, where the manslaughter allegedly took place.
