Welwyn Garden City woman admits killing cyclist

A WOMAN driver has pleaded guilty to killing a father-of-four who was cycling home along the A414.

WGC resident Debra Kelly today (Thursday) admitted causing Kenneth Lush’s death by careless or inconsiderate driving in May last year.

The 38-year-old from Tubbs Croft also pleaded guilty to failing to report an accident, but denied a charge of failing to stop.

Kelly was given bail and will appear back at St Albans Crown Court for a further hearing in March.

Married Kenneth Lush, a former Howe Dell and Hatfield School pupil, was managing director of family-run Hatfield business Lush Heat Treatment.
