A 32-year-old-man has been jailed after being convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He was also given a 10 year disqualification from driving for causing death by dangerous driving and a five year disqualification from driving for causing serious injury, again to run concurrently, as well as an extended retest.
