Driver Found Guilty Of Causing Boy's Death Outside Mosque

    A Manchester man has been found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving after colliding with an 11-year-old boy who had just finished afternoon prayers.

    Shazaib Hussain was hit outside a Mosque on Moss Street West in Ashton-under-Lyne in February this year and died from his injuries.

    20-year-old, Henry Barker from Failsworth had already admitted causing death by careless driving but pleaded not guilty to causing death by dangerous driving.

    However, a jury at Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court found him guilty of the offence.

    Barker will be sentenced on August 25.
