A man has been charged in connection with the death of a nine-year-old boy in Ferring.
Callum John Oakford, who was known to his friends as CJ, died in hospital after the collision on the A259 at Ferring, West Sussex, on Thursday.
Kamel Kadri, 38, of Goring, has been accused of failing to stop at the scene of a road accident, failing to report an accident and other document offences.
