    Pretty horrific to watch, hopefully the driver won't be back on the road again. Seems that the riders involved were on the road to recovery at the time of the article. I note that that the driver was not charged with leaving the scene of an accident, I would be interested to hear from those more learned in the law why this would be.

    Perhaps he returned after the video stopped.

    20 quid victim surcharge, how did they get to that figure?

    True, at 81, a 2 years a ban was not enough

    Nobody should be driving after 80. I don’t care how much you cry about it.
