Jayne Field, 50, of Cameron Close, Hailsham, appeared at Hove Crown Court last week, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) confirmed.

The hearing set a trial date of 31 January 2022, according to the CPS.

The charge relates to a fatal collision on January 30 last year.

Cyclist Nathan Hill was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 51-year-old, who worked at Tradesmith in Hailsham as a window and door maker, was ‘hugely popular’, his family said in an emotional tribute last year.

They said: “Nathan was much loved by everyone who knew him. He was a hugely popular man, well known in Hailsham.

“He was generous and kind and always stopped to say hello to people.

“He enjoyed his job, going to his local gym, and his social life - he had many friends. He particularly enjoyed dancing and karaoke.”

Police said at the time that Nathan was cycling along London Road, close to the junction with Grovelands Road, when he was struck by a car, causing him to fall into the path of an oncoming bus.
