Man denies Westerham Costa coffee death crash
An 87-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to killing a woman who died when his car ploughed into a coffee shop.
David Lord, from Westerham, denied causing Valerie Deakin's death by dangerous driving following the crash in Westerham, Kent, on Christmas Eve.
Ms Deakin, 74, of Udimore, East Sussex, died when Mr Lord's Audi crashed into the town centre branch of Costa.
Mr Lord was given unconditional bail at Maidstone Crown Court but no date has yet been set for his trial.
Two men and two women were taken to hospital after the crash. Another woman was treated for minor injuries.
