Arthur Cadbourn, aged 60, denied manslaughter when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court.

The manslaughter charge comes after police found 69-year-old Alan Youd injured on Chestnut Drive, Shirebrook, on August 11, just before 7am.

The 69-year-old did not recover from his injuries and died in hospital on August 17.

Alan Youd, 69, died a few days after he was found injured on Chestnut Drive, Shirebrook, on August 11

During the opening of an inquest into Mr Youd’s death, coroner Peter Nieto said Mr Youd was found ‘unresponsive’ with a ‘very noticeable head injury’.

Cadbourn, of Chesterfield Road, Chesterfield, was bailed pending a trial in August, which is expected to last between five and eight days.

Paying tribute to Mr Youd following his death, his family described him as ‘a doting father, grandfather and father-in-law’.

They said: “We can never replace what we have lost.

“Dad was the biggest kid when he spent time with his grandchildren – he loved them dearly and they thought the world of him.

“They would always be spoiled by grandpa and he would take them swimming and to local parks.

“His zest for life was continued in his love of motorcycles, especially his Triumph Bonneville.

“He finally passed his test at 65 and would often ring when he had ridden to the coast.

“He would always try to help others where needed and was a regular blood donor, giving 160 donations of blood and platelets.

“Dad’s memory will remain with us and his legacy lives on in his children and grandchildren.

“We miss him more than words could ever portray and will love him forever.”
