A police officer is due to appear in court to face a charge of causing death by careless driving.

PC Daniel Bowen, who is based at Stratford Police Station, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court tomorrow (April 22).

The 28-year-old's appearance follows an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) watchdog.

The probe was into a road traffic incident in East Ham in July, after which an 83-year-old man died in hospital.

The investigation was completed within six months.
