The family of Ross and Clare Simons have said they will be campaigning for a change in the law to get tougher sentences for killer drivers. They said that Nicky Lovell would serve just three years' imprisonment for each life he took in the horrific crash in January this year, near Bristol.
We thank the judge for imposing the maximum sentence he could, however we feel cheated by the justice system that does not allow a longer sentence to be imposed for the tragic loss of their lives considering his past convictions. The people who took their lives will never understand what they have taken away from us and have never shown any remorse for their actions. While they will serve a few years in prison, we and those close to Ross and Clare, have been given life sentences. We are not just mourning the present but for the wonderful future they would have surely given us.
