The family of a young beauty therapist from Soham in Cambridgeshire who was killed by a drink driver travelling at speeds of up to 124 miles-per-hour on the A11 in Suffolk is calling for tougher sentences for driving offences.
22-year-old Lauren Danks was on her way home from work when her car was struck from behind by 64-year-old Nelson Curtis from Lakenheath.
Curtis had been reaching speeds of up to 124 mph and had consumed ten pints of beer that night. After the crash, he fled the scene, driving along the A11 with just three wheels on his car.
Last month he was jailed for causing death by dangerous driving. His sentence was seven years.

The Ministry of Justice told ITV News Anglia that drivers who 'kill and ruin lives must face the full force of the law.' and that while 'we can never compensate for the loss of a loved one, we are clear that the punishment must fit the crime.'
