At Newcastle Crown Court, Lisa Maher has pleaded not guilty to causing his death by careless driving.

The 50-year-old, of Western Terrace, Murton, will be tried by a jury on March 11 next year.

The court heard the case could last around three days.

Judge Paul Sloan QC granted her conditional bail in the meantime and said a further, pre-trial hearing will take place on October 25.
