Man charged after fatal accident on A74(M) near Eaglesfield

A man has appeared in court in Dumfries after an accident on the A74(M) in southern Scotland in which a 39-year-old woman lost her life.

It followed an incident on the motorway near Eaglesfield in December 2014 in which Faranza Kousar, of Glasgow, died.

Stephen Clarke, 59, from Wednesbury, was on a petition in private before Sheriff Scott Pattison on a charge involving dangerous driving.

No plea or declaration was made and he was released on bail.
