Have your say

A WOMAN charged with causing the death of a 20-year-old Locks Heath man has appeared in court.

Angela Rawson, 56, of Northmore Road in Locks Heath, is charged with causing the death of Marcus Lowbridge by driving without due care and attention.

Mr Lowbridge died after his Suzuki GSXR motorbike collided with Rawson’s Nissan Micra on Hunts Pond Road, near the junction of Admirals Road, in Park Gate, on Friday, March 10.

Mr Lowbridge lived at Ilex Crescent in Locks Heath and was a former Brookfield School pupil.

He worked at a garage and part-time as a nightclub bouncer.

He was described by friends as a motorcycle enthusiast who was passionate about rugby and going to the gym.

After his death, his friends kept a near-constant roadside vigil at the scene.

Rawson appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court yesterday and spoke only to confirm her name and to enter a not guilty plea.

The case was adjourned pending further work by the legal teams and the availability of people concerned.

Rawson remains on unconditional bail. A provisional trial date has been set for Monday, June 10.
