Killer driver jailed

A man from Sittingbourne has been jailed for 30-months for causing death by dangerous driving.

Mark Graham White, from Chalkwell Road, was driving his BMW along the A2070 near Hamstreet when he collided with a Ford Ka being driven by 24-year-old Rebekah Alderson.

Rebekah suffered fatal burns after being trapped in the car which had caught alight.

It emerged during an investigation into the crash that White had sent text messages to his partner saying he was tired and needed to sleep.

White was additionally banned from driving for four years.
