A MAN arrested in connection with a fatal road crash last year has been released from his bail.

Charles Reader, 28, was hit by a black Renault Clio in Main Road, Dovercourt, on December 1 last year.

Charles, who worked at Rush Green Recycling Centre, was rushed to Colchester General Hospital but later died.

Officers investigating the collision have released a 22-year-old man from Hornchurch from his bail with no further action to be taken.

An inquest will now be held.
