Man has been jailed after killing man during a collision.

The driver, Adrian Knox-Hooke, 30, of Baker Street in Enfield admitted to killing a man after reversing his car the wrong way down a one-way road.

On August 5, 2017, Knox-Hooke reversed his Mercedes A180 around 20 metres down Gladstone Way in Harrow in an illegal manoeuvre, where he collided with Rajesh Naik, 63, who was crossing the road.

Met Police officers and the London Ambulance Service attended the scene and found Mr Naik with a serious head injury.

Mr Naik was taken to hospital but died a few days later.

Knox-Hooke failed to stop at the scene, and although he returned on foot minutes later, he failed to inform officers of his involvement.

An investigation was launched and Knox-Hooke was arrested the next day and charged with the crime.

He pleaded guilty to death by dangerous driving today at the Old Bailey.

He was sentenced to six years in jail and was disqualified from driving for eight years.

He will be required to pass an extended re-test before being permitted to drive again.

Detective Sergeant Ben Massink from the Met's Road and Transport Policing Command said: "The sudden death of Mr Naik was brought about solely by the dangerous and dishonest actions of a man who has now been sentenced to six years in prison.

"Although this outcome will not bring Mr Naik back, we hope it will bring them some comfort and closure.

"This was what can only be described as a tragedy and our thoughts remain with Mr Naik's family and friends."

Mr Naik's son, Kaushil Naik, spoke on behalf of the family. He said: "It is hard to put into words how painful this incident has been for us, and to try to convey the grief and loss we feel at the death of my father. It is beyond words. We are such a close family and all truly love each other so much, and my father was such a big part of that. Losing him has left a void in our family that only he could fill."
