A MAN has been charged in connection with a hit-and-run which killed six-year-old Owen Wightman.

Today detectives charged a 21-year-old man from Huddersfield with death by dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident.

He is expected to appear before Wakefield Magistrates’ Court later this month.
