A coach driver was given a 12-month community order at Nottingham Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to causing a death by careless driving.

Nicholas Hird, 57, of Harcourt Street, Newark, caused the death of 61-year-old Angela Dowd last year when taking children from a nearby school on a trip.

The court heard Mrs Dowd's sudden death was caused by momentary driver inattention when she crossed a road without looking and, was subsequently struck.
