A SPEEDING motorcyclist who killed a 22-year-old woman and seriously injured her sister has had his jail sentence cut.

David Dolan, of Evelyn Street, was jailed for eight years in May after admitting causing death by dangerous driving last year.

Susie Chiverton, from Lymm, was killed and her younger sister Julia seriously injured when they were hit by Dolan while crossing the road at Brick Street close to the Cockhedge Centre.

On Monday three senior judges cut Dolan’s sentence to six years.

Justice Simon, sitting at London’s Court of Appeal, said: “He has committed a crime which has caused a death and resulted in a significant loss to her family, no sentence can make up for that loss.

“In our view the correct starting point was eight years and the appeallant should have been given a 25 per cent reduction for deciding to plead. In our view the sentence should have a term of six years, not eight.”

Lord Justice Hughes, who also heard the evidence, expressed his sympathy to Susie’s parents who sat in court.

The court was told Dolan’s 600cc motorbike was travelling an estimated 58mph on a 30mph road when he overtook a car and hit the two women.

He was not insured and his provisional licence only allowed him to use a 125cc bike.

He gave false details to the police and witnesses said he had been driving aggresively.

A statement from Susie’s mum described her family’s pride in her sporting and academic success and the sense of loss they felt after her death.

A graduate of Cardiff University, she also played for Lymm Hockey Club.
