M1 minibus crash: Second lorry driver cleared of death by dangerous driving

    A second lorry driver involved in a crash on the M1 that killed eight people has been cleared of causing death by dangerous driving.

     

    David Wagstaff, 54, was on a hands-free call when his lorry hit a minibus, forcing it under a stationary lorry in lane one near Newport Pagnell. Mr Wagstaff described what happened as a "lack of concentration".

     

    The driver of the other lorry involved, Ryszard Masierak, 31, was convicted on Tuesday of the same charges.

    The pair are due to be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on 23 March.
