Cumbrian woman in court after fatal incident

A woman has appeared at Carlisle Crown Court accused of causing the death of an elderly pedestrian by careless driving.

Rychenda Edgar, 22, was charged with causing the death of 71-year-old Marjorie Borwick, of Cockfield Drive, Workington, who was struck by a car as she was crossing the A595 road with her son outside St John’s Church, Bigrigg, where one of her grandchildren was about to be christened on December 4 last year.

Mrs Borwick – who had six children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren - was taken to hospital but died from her injuries.

Edgar, of Dryden Way, Egremont, pleaded not guilty to causing her death by driving without due care and attention.

She was remanded on unconditional bail and will go on trial over two days, starting on Tuesday January 15.

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
