Although, we accept that he did not intend to kill Olivia and Jasmine, the fact remains that he did kill them as a result of a completely unnecessary and genuinely appalling piece of deliberate dangerous driving, exacerbated by his decision to drive having consumed ketamine and mephedrone earlier that night. No words can convey the suffering that his actions have caused and no sentence can compensate for the dreadful loss of two young lives.
I would like to thank Hampshire Constabulary for their thorough investigation but most of all I would like to pay tribute to Olivia and Jasmine’s families for their dignity and fortitude in such tragic circumstances.
