Jordan Seddon bike death: Driver jailed for eight years
A driver who killed a teenage cyclist after drinking three pints of lager has been jailed.
Jordan Seddon, 17, was knocked off his BMX bike on Cargo Fleet Lane, Middlesbrough, on 3 September.
Shelleen Wardle had previously admitted causing death by careless driving while over the legal alcohol limit. It was her fourth drink-driving offence.
The 41-year-old, of Berwick Hills Avenue, Middlesbrough, was jailed at Teesside Crown Court for eight years.
Insp Harry Simpson, from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, said: "[Shelleen Wardle] has shown arrogance and ignorance in continuing to offend in this way, which has tragically resulted in the death of a young boy who had his whole life ahead of him.
"This case is another example of the stark and sad reality of what can happen if a driver gets behind the wheel while intoxicated."
