Farmer guilty after Deeping student Katie dies...

A speeding farmer has been found guilty of causing the death by dangerous driving of Deepings student Katie Shields.

According to today's Stamford Mercury, the farmer was involved in another fatal road accident some years ago when the Mercedes car he was driving plunged into the River Glen. He survived, but his wife died.

I reported here on the tragedy of Katie's death just over a year ago.

It appears 18-year-old Katie was waiting to turn right into Hop Pole, Deeping St Nicholas, when the car she was driving was hit by the farmer's 4x4
Grand Jeep Cherokee. Experts estimated the 4x4 was being driving at over 70mph in a 50mph area and its high speed had attracted the attention of witnesses before the collision.
