The pensioner had previously been on bail for attempted murder until last Friday while police probe the tragedy at Preston’s Morrison store on May 24.

The badly injured pedestrian, 39-year-old Angela Booth, lost her battle for life more than three weeks later at Wythenshawe Hospital.

It was alleged that she was hit by a Peugeot Elddis motorhome early on that Friday morning. A Home Office post-mortem examination revealed the cause of death as multiple injuries.
