Byrd was remanded to prison after appearing at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court that same day.

Mr Obafial died in hospital on July 28. Byrd will next appear at court on August 18.

In a statement Mr Obafial’s family have paid tribute to the joy he brought to their lives: “All the family and friends of Gianne will sadly miss him but take great comfort in the joy he brought to all our lives in such a short space of time.

"The family wish to thank the emergency services for their care and support. We now request that our privacy is respected and that we are left alone to grieve."

Officers are still keen to hear from any witnesses to the incident, in particular any drivers with dashcam footage.
