Six defendants to be sentenced after lorry rammed into Goldenhill house

Five men and a woman are to be sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court after a lorry was rammed into a house. The truck was deliberately driven into Thomas Doherty’s Goldenhill home in November, 2015[1] following a dispute between warring families. Two adults and two children in the ‘severely’ damaged house escaped uninjured from the Broadfield Road property.

Now the defendants have admitted their part in the conspiracy which led to the house being rammed by the lorry.

Two other men – Ian Lloyd, aged 31, of Long Lane, Middlewich, and Nathan Ward, of Cledford Lane, Middlewich – pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal vehicles. The six defendants were on trial this week at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court along with a juvenile.
