Dead driver's parent's say killer's jail term is 'kick in teeth'

The parents of a man killed when his car was hit at high speed have put the wreckage on display at Westminster as part of a campaign for tougher sentences by road safety charity Brake.

Joseph Brown-Lartey died as his vehicle was split in half by a car driven by Addil Haroon in Rochdale in 2014.

Haroon, then 18, drove through a red light in a residential area at 80mph and was later jailed for six years.

Mr Brown-Lartey's father said it was like being "kicked in the teeth twice".
