A man has denied causing the death by dangerous driving of a 65-year-old pedestrian in Northumberland.

Kathleen Heslop died along with her pet dog as she crossed the B6395 Stonyflat Bank in Prudhoe, on 13 July.

David Robinson, of Woodhead Road, Prudhoe, also pleaded not guilty to causing causing death while driving uninsured.

The 26-year-old was remanded in custody to be tried at Newcastle Crown Court on 28 October.

Mr Robinson did not enter pleas for three other motoring charges.

A 28-year-old woman who was arrested in connection with Ms Heslop's death, was released with no further action.
