A man who killed a motorcyclist by throwing a spade at him has been jailed for six years.

34 year old Matthew Buckworth threw the spade at 17-year-old Sonny Stephenson as he rode a motorbike in Guisborough, fracturing his skull.

Appearing in court yesterday, Buckworth denied murder and was cleared of that charge as he admitted manslaughter and attempting to cause actual bodily harm to the 15-year-old passenger. He had one previous conviction.

Accepting Buckworth’s remorse and giving him credit for his guilty plea, the judge jailed him for six years.

 

Police are appealing for witnesses following serious collision on a major route in our area.

The two vehicle collision occurred on the A174 eastbound just after 6.45pm yesterday evening in the Coulby Newham area on the eastbound off-slip road at Low Lane.

Now officers are appealing for any drivers who were in the area immediately before the collision or at the time of the incident to come forward with information.

Anyone with any information should contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
