Cumbrian man denies dangerous driving behind ambulance

A pensioner has appeared in front of a judge accused of dangerous driving while following an emergency ambulance on its way to hospital.

Raymond Hingston, 73, was driving his son behind the ambulance as it travelled along the A66 between Penrith and Cockermouth with the younger man’s heavily pregnant partner inside as she was taken to hospital to give birth on August 27 last year.

Hingston, of Casson Road, Workington, has denied driving his Citroen Picasso dangerously.

He was remanded on bail by Carlisle Crown Court and will go on trial on June 4.
