Man drove at group in Lake District beauty spot

[A]N “angry” motorist who drove at a group of people after fighting broke out at a Lake District beauty spot has been sentenced by a judge.

Nathaniel Peter John Lockie, 27, struck one man during an incident which was seen by numerous innocent bystanders. This occurred at The Glebe, Bowness-on-Windermere, on 7th June last year.

Victim Boris Gaj was hit by Lockie’s Audi and suffered a large red mark on his leg.

Lockie later admitted a charge of dangerous driving, but claimed he had been trying to help friends embroiled in the violence.

He was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court today (THURS).

Judge Tony Lancaster imposed a 12-month community order. Lockie, of Norwood Avenue, Southport, must attend a “thinking skills” course, and observe a three-month night time curfew.

Judge Lancaster told him: “You were angry at the time because of what had happened to your friends.

“You lost control of your better senses.”
