Drunk biker jailed over pillion death

Four-and-a-half years inside and seven year ban for twice the limit biker

A MOTORCYCLIST who admitted causing the death of his pillion passenger after riding his motorcycle while drunk has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Kevin Dutton, 31, from Stoke-on-Trent, was involved in an accident which killed passenger Stephen Bradbeer, a 36-year-old pub landlord, in August last year.

When tested, Dutton was found to be twice over the drink drive limit, Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard.

He was also banned from driving for seven years.
