A man has been charged with murder following the death of a 59-year-old man on the A38.

David Crawford, 59, from Ivybridge, died on the A38 at St Budeaux, on Thursday, 12 May.

Police have charged Benjamin Parry, 42, from Devonport, Plymouth, with murder in connection with his death. 

He has been held in remand and is due before Plymouth Magistrates Court this morning, Saturday, 14 May, 2022.

The incident involved a bike and a van, with Mr Crawford, known by friends as "Mad Dog" riding the bike. 

Our thoughts are with David's friends and family at this time.
