A man who killed his sister by driving into a river in Cambridgeshire has been jailed for 20 months.

Natalie Scotchford, 19, of Blenheim Road, Ramsey, was a passenger in the van which plunged into the River Nene near the town on 6 July.

At an earlier hearing, Nathan Scotchford, 23, of Daintree Road, Ramsey, admitted causing her death by careless driving after drinking.

Scotchford was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court.

Although rescuers were able to release Miss Scotchford from the Ford van, which was found upside down in the river, she later died in Peterborough Hospital.
