by Danielle Thompson

A MAN whose careless driving resulted in the death of a cyclist has been sentenced to 300 hours of unpaid community work.

Samuel Fawcett, 19, of Liverpool Road, Rufford, was sentenced on Wednesday, July 31 at Preston Crown Court after being convicted of causing death by driving without due care and attention.

He was also disqualified from driving for two years.

The 56-year-old male victim died after he was hit by Fawcett's car while riding his bicycle along along Meadow Lane, Croston in March last year.
