Blackburn crash father's plea for 'justice'


The father of a girl left dying under the wheels of a car has urged judges for "justice" by deporting the driver.

Paul Houston, from Darwen, Lancashire, told judges they had the power to bring his "seven years of hell to an end" by sending Aso Mohammed Ibrahim to Iraq.

The Iraqi Kurd fled after knocking down 12-year-old Amy Houston in Blackburn in 2003. He was jailed for four months.

On Monday the UK Border Agency (UKBA) began a tribunal appeal against the decision to grant Ibrahim residency.
