A driver who killed a woman while speeding at up to 95mph (153km/h) in a 30mph (48km/h) zone has been found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.

A jury at Nottingham Crown Court was told Scrimshaw was also 1.75 times over the blood alcohol limit.
He is due to be sentenced later.
Mrs Higginson’s car was hit almost head on and she died at the scene.
