A 25-year-old man has been found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving in Potters Bar.

Luke Stella, of Park Street Lane, Park Street, St Albans, who pleaded not guilty, was driving home from work for a family dinner on his Suzuki motorbike on April 14, 2014, when he collided with pedestrian Francis Abbot, 71, in Mutton Lane, Potters Bar.

Mr Abbot was killed while Stella suffered a broken leg.

At St Albans Crown Court, Stella said: “I am devastated for Mr Abbot’s family and everyone that knew him.

“It’s a very, very upsetting time and I never thought I’d ever find myself in a situation like this.”

Stella will be sentenced on Wednesday, November 30, and has been given an interim order banning him from driving.
