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.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
