PC Sarah Pride, who investigated, said: “I would like to thank witnesses who came forward and described Gordon’s manner of driving in the moments leading up to the crash.

“Gordon lost a toe as a result of the collision, but it was thanks to his helmet that it wasn’t anything more serious. He had a provisional licence and will need to reapply.”
