Video. The driver accused of attempting to cover up the role he played in the death of a teenage moped rider left a trail of lies in the aftermath of the crash, a court has heard today.
Brian Hampton told his wife he had nothing to do with the collision which left 16-year-old Jade Clark dead on the A31 near Ringwood in February this year.
The jury at Bournemouth Crown Court was also told how he got his car repaired to hide signs of the accident, telling mechanics he had hit a deer. Martin Dowse reports.
