Hemsworth quad bike deaths: Family appeal over 'reckless' road racing

The families of four young people killed by a man taking part in an illegal road race have appealed for drivers to consider the potential consequences of their actions.

Ryan Beal, 20, Brandon Brown, 20, Alexandra Binns, 18, and Terrie Kirby, 16, from Upton, near Wakefield, died when the quad bike they were riding was hit by a car at 140mph on the A6201 Hemsworth bypass.

The driver of the car, Daniel Raynor, 24, from Barnsley, was jailed for nine years for causing their deaths while taking part in a race.
