A man has appeared in court accused of murdering a 51-year-old dad who was mowed down by his own car.

Marc Allen died a month after he was run down by his own car when he tried to challenge a man who allegedly attempted to steal his car from his driveway on Peareswood Road in December 2019.

On Thursday (June 20) Errol Woodger, 37, of Mottisfont Road, Abbey Wood, appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court accused of Marc's murder.

He is also accused of robbing Marc of the same vehicle.

Woodger spoke only to confirm his identity.

District judge Sarah Turnock remanded Woodger into custody and adjourned the case to the Old Bailey for Monday.

Woodger was also charged with three other offences relating to the driving of an e-scooter while disqualified and without insurance in Plumstead, south east London on June 18.

After he was mowed down Marc was taken to King’s College Hospital in south London where he was placed into a coma.

He died a month later on January 29, 2020.
