A DOCTOR who caused a head-on crash after driving dangerously was due to appear at a tribunal this week.

Consultant anaesthetist Julia Morch-Siddall, of East Heddon, last year received an 18-month suspended prison sentence for dangerous driving and failing to provide a specimen for analysis.

On Monday a medical practitioners tribunal began, which is due to last until Friday. The tribunals hear evidence to decide whether registration should be restricted.
