Taxi driver kills 12 in gun rampage

A taxi driver has gone on the rampage, killing 12 people and wounding at least 25 before taking his own life.

Derrick Bird, 52, brought terror to the idyllic Lake District as he drove his cab through the Cumbrian countryside, blasting victims through the window apparently at random.

Britain's worst mass shooting since the 1996 Dunblane tragedy began when the divorced father-of-two shot fellow taxi drivers in the town of Whitehaven, killing at least one.
