Harry Whitlam died on a farm at Rothwell in Leeds but the tractor driver was not subject to the drink drive laws because it happened on private land.

His mother Pam Whitlam has been campaigning for a change in the law. She said drink driving should be an offence wherever you are and wants the law extending to cover private land.
