North East News Round up

Taking a look at a round up of some of the week’s headlines from around the North East.

We start off with a story from Newcastle, where a Driver has avoided jail for hitting a cyclist while trying to hurl abuse at him, causing him a fractured knee for his trouble.

The jury decided that the defendant, Aimee Baty of Wallsend, was not guilty of causing injury by dangerous driving, but was instead found guilty of careless driving and failing to report an accident.

Next up, yet another driver has been caught out by the tide at Holy Island, being left stranded on the causeway while attempting to cross his Horse Box at High Tide.

Thankfully, it seems no animals were in the Van at the time. See link below.
