Gregg Marsh, 22, of Bracken Hill, Ackworth pleaded not guilty to the charge during a short hearing at Leeds Crown Court this morning.

The unnamed cyclist was struck by a car on the A638 Doncaster Road in South Elmsall, close to the Next distribution, at around 6.40am on December 21, 2019.

Marsh will stand trial on December 5 next year, the earliest date that could be found during this morning's plea and trial preparation hearing.
