Relatives: Throw book at Belfast car-jackers
30 October 2013 Last updated at 14:22 GMT
The families of victims of car crime have called for tougher action to be taken against the perpetrators.
Families Bereaved Through Car Crime (FBTCC) said they had "fought hard" for the introduction of new legislation, but it was not being used by the courts.
The group has appealed to judges to "throw the book" at those consistently involved in car crime.
