Mother killed by L-plate daughter

A woman who was knocked down by her learner-driver daughter who was trying to reverse into a parking space has died in hospital.

Susan Duke, 41, suffered catastrophic head injuries when she was struck by the Ford Ka being driven by 17-year-old Lauren.

She was taken to a London hospital by air ambulance after the accident in Cuxton, Kent, on Monday but died on Wednesday.

She is thought to have been standing behind the vehicle to help guide her daughter as she practised parking in a space at the Cuxton Social Club car park.
