An Islington man has been charged with grievous bodily harm (GBH) in connection with a hit-and-run moped collision that put a 90-year-old pedestrian in hopsital.

Danny O’Reilly, 23, was charged with GBH, driving without insurance, driving not in accordance with a licence, failing to stop and failing to report a road traffic collision on Monday last week.

The victim, John Savile, sustained injuries to his head and leg during the incident.

O’Reilly will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on February 18.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Officers were called to Worcester Point, Central Street, EC1V at 8:51pm on Monday, August 6 following reports of a collision between a moped and a male pedestrian.

“Police and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 90-year-old man with serious leg and head injuries.”

Mr Savile has since been discharged from hospital and continues to recover at home.
