Cumbrian man drove into path of oncoming police car

A man who ignored a no entry sign found himself in the path of an oncoming police car.

James Moray Broughton, 20, of Cargo Beck, near Carlisle, admitted careless driving when he appeared before magistrates in the city.

Adrienne Harris, prosecuting, told the court that on March 3 Broughton drove along Collier Lane off Court Square despite the no entry sign.

The police car was coming in the opposite direction from the rail station car park.

Geoff Clapp, defending, said Broughton had “a momentary lapse in concentration”.

He was fined £80 with court costs of £35 and a victim surcharge of £15.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
