Abdul Mahad was killed on a crossing when David Belle failed to stop at a red light. Belle had apparently observed the lights on a separate carriageway to the right, which turned green as the lights for the crossing turned red.

Belle pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving and in December 2015 was given a 12 month suspended sentence, 100 hours’ unpaid work and a 12 month driving ban.
