Lady Campbell guilty of causing a three car pile-up

By Tom Pugh

Reality TV star Lady Colin Campbell has been found guilty of causing a three-car pile-up after pulling out into traffic on a dual carriageway.

Prosecutors said Campbell (67) made "an error of judgment" by carrying out an unsafe manoeuvre in her Audi A6 estate on the A27 near Worthing, West Sussex, on May 6 last year.

Brighton Magistrates Court heard, as the 2015 I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star pulled out, an Audi A3 hit her car before the A3 was then "catapulted" into a Ford Focus travelling in the opposite direction.

Magistrates convicted Campbell, from Clapham, near Worthing, of driving without due care and attention.

Campbell was handed a conditional discharge, ordered to pay costs and a victim surcharge totalling £680, and given three penalty points.
