A man charged with causing the death of a Peterborough Cathedral chorister by dangerous driving has appeared in court.

Robert Madiss (30) of Chaplins Close, Coates, appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court this morning (Friday, November 13) following the death of James Trickey on December 23 last year.

James (22), who was described as irreplaceable and a treasure by his mum Sue, died after he was involved in a collision with a car as he was cycling on Storey’s Bar Road at about 7am.

James had been a professional singer in the cathedral choir for just over a year and was said to have had the potential for a significant career.

His funeral at the cathedral was attended by hundreds of people, and earlier this year his mother published a book he had written when he was 18.

At the court hearing Madiss spoke only to confirm his name and address.
