A man has been charged in connection with a fatal collision involving a pedestrian from Enfield.

In the early hours of June 4 2010, Ricky Burlton, 20, was killed while crossing the A10 in Hertfordshire.

An inquest held in November 2010 heard Mr Burlton died instantly after he was struck by a Rover while trying to cross the entrance to a slip road near Hoddesdon.

In 2015, the European Union police agency Europol issued an appeal to trace a man - Aleksi Shyti - in connection with the crash.

Shyti is believed to have left the country shortly after the collision.

Today (October 6), Hertfordshire Constabulary revealed Shyti was detained in August this year after attempting to enter Bulgaria and he was extradited to the UK as a result.

He was brought into Hertfordshire Constabulary’s custody on Monday October 4.

Shyti has been charged with causing death whilst driving without a licence, possession of a false identity document, and providing false information to obtain an insurance policy.

He appeared at Hatfield Remand Court yesterday (October 5) before being remanded back into custody and next scheduled to appear at St Albans Crown Court on November 8.

Detective Inspector Iain Macpherson, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) major crime unit, said: "Ricky’s family have had to wait 11 long years for someone to be charged in connection with his death.

"I cannot imagine how difficult it has been for them and as ever, they remain in our thoughts as we work through this latest development.

"We now wait for the justice process to progress."
