The mother of Reeva Steenkamp, the model shot dead by Oscar Pistorius, has written about how she felt when the Blade Runner apologised in court - an apology she was "unmoved" by and which she said put her in "an awkward position".

Pistorius was jailed for five years for killing Steenkamp, but he could be out of prison in 10 months.

In an extract from June Steenkamp's book, Reeva: A Mother's Story, published in the Times Magazine, June Steenkamp describes Pistorius, 27, as a "pathetic figure".
