A uninsured driver (Bimson, 23) has been jailed for eight years for causing death by dangerous driving.
The court heard that the driver had spent the evening drinking with friends in the Malmaison Hotel before driving uninsured and unlicensed. The driver knocked down the victim (Bradley, 24), an award-winning landscape gardener on Liverpool’s Waterfront, near the Hilton Hotel. The victim was in the city on a stag night, before he was tragically killed on 3rd November 2017.

Prosecuting, Mr Snowdon, said ‘’Bradley didn’t stand a chance and was hit at a speed that meant his virtually inevitable’’.
Bimson, was convicted of causing death by driving without a licence and causing death by driving whilst uninsured. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison and disqualified for 12 years.
His passenger, Saddique was jailed for 18 months for aiding and abetting causing death by driving whilst uninsured and disqualified for three years and nine months.
