A driver who killed a 60-year-old pedestrian in Middlesbrough has been spared jail.

Hamza Bashir, of Glenfield Drive, Middlesbrough, admitted causing Linda Warren's death by driving without due care and attention on 23 October 2014.

Teesside Crown Court sentenced him to 32 weeks in jail suspended for a year, 200 hours unpaid work and banned him from driving for two years.

The 20-year-old had initially denied the offence but changed his plea.

The court heard the grandmother of seven died in hospital after being hit by a Hyundai driven by Bashir.

The crash happened in Saltersgill Avenue, Middlesbrough.
