Roger Freeman was killed and his wife seriously injured by the attacking bull

Police have charged a man following the death of a walker almost three years ago.

Roger Freeman was killed by a bull while walking at Stanford on Soar, in November 2010.

Nottinghamshire Police yesterday charged Paul Geoffrey Waterfall, of Leake Lane, Stanford on Soar, Leicestershire, with manslaughter by gross negligence.

The 39-year-old was bailed to appear before Nottingham magistrates on Wednesday 21 August 2013.

Mr Freeman was with his wife Glenis on a public footpath through a field, off Leake Lane in Stanford on Soar, about 4.30pm on Friday 12 November 2010 when the bull attacked.

The 63-year-old, from Glen Parva in Leicestershire, died at the scene from multiple injuries.

His wife Glenis, who was aged 67 at the time, was critically injured and spent three weeks in hospital. Police said she is continuing her recuperation at home.
