95mph driver death: Family 'has had justice'

The daughter-in-law of a woman who was killed by a man who had been driving at speeds of up to 95mph (153km/h) has said the family has had justice.

Matthew Scrimshaw was jailed for 12 years for causing the death of Iris Higginson, 67, by dangerous driving in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, in December last year.

He was on the wrong side of the road and over the drink-drive limit at the time.

Pauline Hotchkiss said outside Nottingham Crown Court her mother-in-law had been a "wonderful lady".

"It's very hard seeing your family in pain but we feel we have had justice," she said.
