'Distracted' truck driver banned for two years after crash

A truck driver from County Durham has been given a suspended prison sentence and a two-year driving ban after severely injuring two others while distracted on the A66.

Carlisle Crown Court heard that Roy Stuart Cothill, 48, looked up from his tachograph too late to avoid hitting a braking car in front while driving between Penrith and Appleby.

The drivers of the two cars in front were hurt, with one told by his doctor he would "never by the same" after a bleed on his brain.

Cothill, from Front Street, in Pity Me, admitted two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and was given a 16-month prison sentence suspended for two years. He must also complete 200 hours unpaid work.

Labour MP says Universal Credit problems not learnt from

Fergus Hewison

BBC Newcastle political reporter

The Government has failed to learn from problems caused by the introduction of the Universal Credit (UC) benefits system in Newcastle ahead of its roll out in Durham and Gateshead, a Labour MP claims.

Newcastle North MP Catherine McKinnell made the claim ahead of the roll out during the next three months.

People moving to UC, which combines a number of benefits into one payment, have to wait six weeks or more before they receive any money.

Earlier this year Newcastle City Council said 85% of council tenants on UC were in arrears on their rent.

But North East Conservative councillor Judith Wallace argues the new benefit is better and people are being offered help and budgeting advice.
