North Cumbrian man charged with causing death by dangerous driving

A man appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today accused of causing death by dangerous driving.

Ryan Glendinning, 23, of Dacre Bank Farm, Dacre, near Penrith, is accused of being responsible for the death of Dominic Loftus at Greystoke, near Penrith, last year.

Mr Loftus was a pub manager, his parents ran both The Oddfellows Arms in Caldbeck, where he worked, and The Sportsman’s Inn at Penruddock.

Glendinning is also charged with causing serious injury to two other people while driving a BMW on the B5288.

Three charges were on his indictment, one of causing death by dangerous driving and two of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

However, these charges were not read out and Glendinning did not enter any plea.

It is expected he will plead not guilty. A trial date was set for Monday, August 18.
