A motorist is to stand trial next year accused of causing the death of 27-year-old cyclist Timothy Osborne.

Paul Walken, 42, of Chapel Lane, Folkingham, pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing death by dangerous driving on September 14, 2012, when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court today (Friday).

Judge Mark Rogers adjourned the hearing for a five-day trial to take place in February. Walken was granted unconditional bail.

Mr Osborn, who lived in Pode Hole near Spalding, failed to return home after setting off to cycle home from work. His body was found alongside the A151 Bourne Road, Spalding.
