West Bromwich Albion striker Lee Hughes has denied causing death by dangerous driving.

The 27-year-old footballer appeared at Coventry Crown Court on Friday.

The charge against Mr Hughes relates to a crash involving a silver Mercedes CL 55 coupe and a Renault Megane in Meriden last November.

Douglas Graham, 56, of Eastern Green, Coventry, died after being injured in the crash.

He had been travelling in a back seat in the Megane.

Mr Hughes, of Meriden, Warwickshire, was remanded on conditional bail for a trial date yet to be confirmed.
