A FLINTSHIRE woman who admitted causing the death of a teenage boy in St Asaph has been told a jail sentence is 'inevitable'.

Chantelle Gleave, 22 and of Larch Avenue, Shotton, pleaded guilty to causing the death of 17-year-old Ethan Ross by dangerous driving at Mold Crown Court on Friday, November 12.

However, she will not be sentenced until Thursday, December 9 as Judge Rhys Rowlands requested a pre-sentence report on Gleave who was described as being of previous good character.

On September 12, 2020 Gleave, who was driving a Vauxhall Astra along the A55 near the city, collided with Mr Ross' moped.

Mr Ross was taken to hospital in Stoke with severe head injuries where he later died.

Judge Rowlands called the case a 'tragedy caused by an extremely serious offence'.

He added that a jail sentence was 'inevitable'.

She has also been disqualified from driving.
