A SHOTGUN-WIELDING taxi driver went on a killing rampage in the sleepy villages of northern England last night, shooting people in 11 separate locations before killing himself.
At least five people were believed to be dead and a further 30 wounded.
The 3 1/2-hour rampage terrified the picturesque Lakes District and surrounding parts of Cumbria, England’s least populated county, as police were left tending to survivors as the gunman drove from town to town in his green Citroen Picasso.
Derrick Bird, 52, is believed to have shot many of his victims in the face, with witnesses saying the bodies of cyclists, motorcyclists, drivers and pedestrians were left laying on streets . . .
Bird’s body was found in a wood just outside the Lakes District village, 38km from Whitehaven shortly before 2pm.
