A Man has been jailed after being found guilty of manslaughter following death of a man in April this year.

The motorcyclist, Colin Bailey, who is 30 of Clay Cross has today (Thursday, October 12) been found guilty of manslaughter at Derby Crown Court. He was also found guilty of possession to supply Class A drugs.



Bailey has been sentenced to eight years in prison.


Detective Inspector Gemma Booth who led the investigation said: “The incident in April which resulted in the death of Mr Bowdler was tragic and unnecessary.


“The jury have reached a decision and Bailey will now be sentenced for his actions.


“Our thoughts go out to Mr Bowdler’s family and I would like to thank the public for providing us with information that helped with the investigation.”
