A man who caused the death of a woman in a crash has been found not guilty of dangerous driving.

The 56-year-old woman was in a Ford Focus when it collided with a Ford Fiesta in Lower Road, Higham, in Kent, on 5 December 2015.

She died at the scene and two men were seriously injured.

Ian Harvey, 24, of Burdett Avenue, Gravesend, admitted causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving in September.

He denied the more serious charge, as well as two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He was found not guilty of the three dangerous driving charges following a trial at Maidstone Crown Court and will be sentenced for the lesser charge on Friday.
