A teenager is due to appear in Kendal Magistrates’ Court today in connection with the theft of a double-decker bus in the Lake District which was involved in a 50mph chase along a dual carriageway.

Jamie Christopher Hoare, 18, of High Lea Walk, Barrow, suffered serious injuries when the vehicle crashed into a roundabout near Kendal. It was taken from Barrow, Cumbria at 3.45am on Saturday and was seen by a police patrol being driven without lights on the A590 towards Ulverston.
