A 20-year-old man is to appear at Norwich Crown Court charged with causing the death of a teenage girl in a car crash.
Luke McNally is alleged to have driven a Vauxhall Corsa van which left the road and struck a tree - causing fatal injuries to 15-yearold passenger Emily Knipe.
It is said McNally drove the van without a driving licence on the A143 at Fritton on the morning of December 7 and thereby caused the death of Miss Knipe.
McNally, of Mariners Park Close, Hopton, and Miss Knipe, who also lived in Hopton, both worked as paper deliverers for McColls.
