A migrant worker who caused a crash which killed a Lincolnshire father has been jailed for two and a half years.

Lithuanian Paulius Konstantinavicius, 21, hit the car carrying Matthew Anderson at Dunston Heath near Lincoln in November last year.

Lincoln Crown Court heard Konstantinavicius was tired after working two 12-hour shifts at a packing factory when he missed a give way sign.

He admitted causing death by dangerous driving.

Mr Anderson's partner, Kirsty Barden, who was also in the car with their six-year-old daughter, gave birth to their son just days after the crash.

Outside the court Mr Anderson's family called for tougher sentences for dangerous drivers.
