Barrow pub landlord who failed to notice cyclist fined £135

A Barrow pub landlord has been fined after crashing into a cyclist.

Michael John Elliott pleaded guilty by letter to driving without due care and attention.

The 63-year-old, of Crellin Street, Barrow, admitted crashing his Ford Maverick into a stationary cyclist in Bouthwood Road, Barrow, on March 12.

Mr Lee Dacre, prosecuting, told Furness Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday that Elliott had been driving the Ford when he hit the cyclist.

He said: “He failed to notice the cyclist in Bouthwood Road. He drove down the street and into the cyclist, who was stationary.”

The court heard Elliott is the landlord of the well-known Robin Hood pub, in Crellin Street, Barrow, and was a man of previous good character.

Elliott did not appear before the court but pleaded guilty to the offence by letter.

He said: “I plead guilty to driving without due care and attention and I would ask the court to deal with the case in my absence.”

District judge Mr David Purcell imposed five penalty points on Elliott’s driving licence. He ordered him to pay a £135 fine, £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
