CALLOUS drivers took pictures of a mother’s body on the M27 after she fell to her death, an inquest heard

Motorist David Francis told how he used his vehicle to shield Lucy Page from ‘rubber-neckers.’

Mr Francis, the driver of the LGV behind the one Lucy hit when she fell from a bridge near Fareham, told the inquest he had to position his cab to stop people staring.

At the hearing in Portsmouth yesterday he said: ‘Morons were still driving past the body, rubber-necking, taking photographs.

‘I moved my truck. I positioned my cab so no-one could see the body so they’ve got nothing to look at while going past.’

He added other motorists continued to try to look, after the incident on December 15.
