A 27-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to causing the death by dangerous driving of a March police officer.

Danny Warby, of School Road, Runcton Holme, King’s Lynn, appeared at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday charged with causing death by dangerous driving in connection with the death of Sharon Garrett.

A further case management hearing is scheduled for October 21 at Peterborough Crown Court, with an anticipated trial date set for December 7 at the same court.

The incident happened at 4.35pm on June 6, 2014, on the A141 at Wyton when the Renault Clio Sharon was driving was involved in a collision with two other cars and two lorries.

Detective Constable Garrett, 48, joined Cambridgeshire Police in 1991 and served in a number of roles across the force, most recently investigating complex fraud offences in the Economic Crime Unit.

She was survived by her husband, Adrian, who is also a serving Cambridgeshire police officer and their two children.

Chief Constable Simon Parr said after her death: “Detective Constable Sharon Garrett was an exceptional police officer and will be truly missed by all of the many friends and colleagues who she had within the constabulary.
