The mother of Andrew Young, who was killed by Lewis Gill earlier this year, said she is "relieved" by a decision today to refer Gill's four-and-a-half-year sentence to the Court of Appeal for being unduly lenient.
“I am hoping that the sentence will be extended so that somebody will have a chance to get through to him [Gill], appeal to his heart and mind, and show him the error of his ways”, she told the Dorset Echo.
