A young Bristol rugby player killed in a suspected 'hit and run' in Clifton was beloved at school and awarded a prize for his contributions when he left, the principal has said.

25-year-old Daniel Hickey attended the Bristol Cathedral Choir School, and later played rugby for the Bristol Saracens.

The school's moving tribute to him joined dozens of others, including thoughts from Bristol mayor George Ferguson.

"Several colleagues here have fond memories of Dan and he was certainly held in high regard as a pupil: when he left in 2008, he was awarded our Becky Westlake Prize for Contributions to the Life of the School.”

– Neil Blundell, Principal, Bristol Cathedral Choir School

22-year-old Tayo Jones from Southville has been charged in connection with Daniel Hickey's death, including causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop after an accident. He appeared in court yesterday and has been remanded in custody until a hearing in October.

Two others, a 39-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man, were also arrested, and are on bail until September 9.
