The plea of a man charged with causing the death of Haverhill man Dean Cork at crossroads near West Wratting will be heard next month.

Reginald Smith, 60, from Brinkman Road, Linton, was originally due to appear at Cambridge Crown Court on Monday (January 13), but he will now next be in court on February 12 to enter his plea.

He is charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Dean Cork, 47, from Gainsborough Road, Haverhill, suffered fatal injuries after the Piaggio T5 scooter he was riding was in collision with a Vauxhall Combo van at 7.10am on April 23.

The crash happened in West Wratting at the crossroads leading to RAF Wratting Common.

Van driver Smith was injured in the collision.

The family of Dean Cork described him as a ‘wonderful husband, father, son, brother, cousin and friend’.

Tracey, his wife of 25 years, son Dexter, 20, and daughter Billie, 17, said: “We have lost a wonderful husband, father, son, brother, cousin and friend, very suddenly.

“Dean was a lovely, caring and thoughtful man who left for work in the sunshine on his beloved T5 scooter and did not come back.

“We all miss him and mourn his loss and want to thank all our friends, family and well-wishers for all their messages of love and support.”
