A motorist has been jailed for the death of a pedestrian in Cumbria.

Kenneth Graham, 67, was struck by a car as he crossed Newton Road, near his home in Carlisle, on 12 May 2012. He later died in hospital.

Carlisle Crown Court heard how Paul Robertson had drove "dangerously" on the wrong side of the road to pass another vehicle when he hit Mr Graham.

The 36-year-old, of Inglewood Crescent, Carlisle, was jailed for three-and-a-half-years.

Robertson, who pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving at an earlier hearing, was also disqualified from driving for three years.
