A woman from Waterlooville in Hampshire, accused of killing a lollipop man in a crash, has gone on trial.

22-year-old Lauren Paul, of Ramblers Way, Waterlooville, Hampshire, denies a charge of causing the death of Raymond Elsmore by careless driving, whom she collided with as she drove to work at a sixth form college.

82-year-old Mr Elsmore had worked for about 10 years helping children at Queens Inclosure Primary School in Waterlooville.

Mr Elsmore was taken by air ambulance to Southampton General Hospital where he died of chest and head injuries suffered in the accident.

The trial is being held at Portsmouth Crown Court, but sitting at Southampton Crown Court.
