The mother of a young girl who was killed in a horrific crash on the A34 in Berkshire because the driver was using his mobile phone is calling for sentences to be made as harsh as drink driving.

11-year-old Aimee Goldsmith was returning home from a summer holiday with her father and step family in August last year when they were involved in an eight car pile up near East Ilsley.

Amy was killed along with her step-mother and her two children.

The lorry driver who caused the crash, Tomasz Kroker, from Andover was listening to music on his mobile phone.

Now Aimee's mother Kate has become an ambassador for the Road Victim's Trust.
