Anthony Winter Anthony Winter died after being hit by a lorry

A lorry driver who killed a cyclist on the outskirts of Darlington has been given a suspended jail sentence.

Father-of-three Anthony Winter, 24, died after being hit by a lorry on the A68 at Burtree Gate on 9 January.

Kevin Young, 50, of Hoyland Road in Barnsley, admitted causing Mr Winter's death by failing to pay due care and attention.

Young was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison, suspended for two years, by the Teesside Crown Court judge.

He was also banned from driving for three-and-a-half years, ordered to carry out 160 hours of unpaid work, and must pay an £80 surcharge.

After Mr Winter's death, his sister said he was the "best brother", who would never be forgotten by his three children.
