MP Susan Elan Jones seeks tougher sentence for driving crimes

An MP has brought a bill before parliament calling for tougher sentences for motorists convicted of driving offences causing death or serious injury.

Susan Elan Jones said she wants justice for the family of Robert Gaunt, nine, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver who served just 10 months in jail.

His family, from Overton, thought the sentence too lenient.

The Clwyd South MP said judges need more clarity on the maximum sentences.

Matthew Richards reports.
