An 82-year-old Kenilworth man who killed an elderly woman after crashing into her with his car in the town's Sainsbury's car park has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Anthony Kemp, of Frythe Close, hit 93-year-old Gladys Roberts with his BMW in the supermarket's car park on Thursday October 12 last year.

He was given a 24-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.

Kemp was also banned from driving for 12 months, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115 and £185 in costs.
