Cardiff hit-and-run driver 'did not intend to kill children'

Cardiff Crown Court has heard how a man who went on a hit-and-run rampage through the city last year did not intend to kill any children, although he targeted five different families.

Matthew Tvrdon, 31, is due to be sentenced later today after pleading guilty to one count of manslaughter by diminished responsibility, and a slew of other charges.

The court heard how all of those hurt in the incidents were strangers to the defendant, and were in places where they should have been safe.
