Police have charged a man over the death of a champion windsurfer.

Cyclist Howard Plumb, 42, from Westbourne, was killed as he rode his bike along Knight’s Hill, Charlton, near Chichester.

He suffered serious head injuries in the collision with a Honda Jazz on July 5 last year.

Mr Plumb was taken to St George’s Hospital in London by air ambulance where he died two days later.

Sussex Police have charged Bo Christer Lundmark, 54, a computer consultant, of Blakullevagen 22, 90752, Umea, Sweden, with causing death by careless driving.

He must appear before Worthing Magistrates Court on January 29, to answer the charge.

Mr Plumb, a scientist, represented the UK in windsurfing in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
