Young driver in Bath lorry crash was newly qualified

Philip Potter, 19, was taken to hospital with minor injuries following the accident.

It has emerged that the young driver involved in Monday's devastating lorry crash in Bath had only qualified for his HGV licence three months before the tragedy.

19-year-old Philip Potter was taken to hospital with minor injuries following the accident on Lansdown Lane in which four people died, including a four-year-old girl.

Witnesses have said he repeatedly sounded his horn, in an apparent attempt to avert an accident.

The young driver, who lives near Chippenham, was driving for Wiltshire-based firm Grittenham Haulage Ltd when the crash happened.

The police investigation continues.
