A man has admitted causing the death of a Birmingham pensioner in a hit and run.

Nathaniel Teague, 26, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty on Monday to eight charges, including causing death by dangerous driving.

Teague failed to stop at the scene of the incident and the blue Vauxhall Astra he had been driving was later found dumped in Olton, Solihull.

During the hearing at Birmingham Magistrates' Court, he also pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle taking, driving without insurance, causing death by driving a vehicle without a licence, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident

Teague was remanded in custody and is due at Birmingham Crown Court for sentencing on 18 March.
