The sentence of a motorist convicted of killing a cyclist was "unduly lenient", a court has been told. Prosecutors are appealing the sentence of Gary McCourt, who was found guilty in April of causing the death of Audrey Fyfe by driving carelessly.
Audrey, a lifelong CTC member who was 75, died two days after McCourt clipped the back wheel of her bike in Edinburgh in August 2011.
McCourt, who was 49 when sentenced in April, was banned from driving for five years and ordered to carry out 300 hours of community service by Sheriff James Scott.
At the end of his trial at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, it emerged that he was jailed for two years after being convicted in 1986 of causing another cyclist's death by reckless driving.
