Driver admits causing former Millom motorbiker’s death

A MAN has admitted killing a former supermarket worker by careless driving.

Paul Fursey – a member of Millom Bike Group who worked at the Asda store in Walney Road, Barrow for five years – died on October 2 last year when his motorcycle was in collision with a car pulling out of a side road on to the A66 near Cockermouth.

Yesterday the driver of the car, 23-year-old Jamie Alexander Crellin, of Row Brow Park, Dearham, Maryport, pleaded guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to a charge of causing his death by driving without due care and attention.

Prosecuting barrister, Mr Tim Evans said the accident at the Great Broughton junction was down to “a momentary lapse of concentration” by the car driver.

Mr Fursey, who was 31 and originally came from Devonshire Road, in Millom, was living in Bolton Low Houses, near Aspatria, and working at the Workington Asda at the time of his death.

Millom Bike Group members formed a cavalcade behind his hearse at his funeral.

At the end of yesterday's brief hearing Crellin, wearing a white shirt with black tie and trousers, was remanded on bail for probation reports.

He will be sentenced on October 10.

He was banned from driving in the meantime.
